How to sun dry a whole octopus for greek cousine?

In Greek islands they sun dry whole octopus possibly to tendirize and prepare the octopus for the grill. Cooking fresh octopus without preboiling is the key for me for the real taste. I think they also do this method in pacific islands.

Drying is a form of preservation. I'd advise you gut & clean it, and cut it to give a large surface area. Hang in hot sun. L
