Drying Honesty (money plant)

We have had a moist fall; I brought the "flowers" in and have them sitting in dry bucket to dry; a slow process

Is there an easy way to remove the outer layers? right now it is tedious, one by one. I had hoped they would dry and fall off by themselves <g>

Drying lunaria

We always gathered the money plant and hung it upside down to dry. If the husks don't fall off, they can be easily removed by rubbing between thumb and forefinger.

thanx, I must have 50 stalks; when I rub the pod between fingers, it does work, just VERY time consuming.

The stalks are dry, it's just getting the shell off that is tedious
