I’m a huge fan of my dehydrator. I have an Excalibur Dehydrator – 9 shelf unit. Before purchasing my Excalibur, I wasn’t so much of a fan. My food came out “ok” at best. This one is a dream. So far everything has turned out perfectly. In fact, I’m thinking about getting a second unit. Dehydrated foods take up so much less space! I do have a food saver but I have to say, I prefer to store in canning jars. They look so pretty and at times the items can be a little sharp and puncture the bags.
Tonight I am dehydrating Kale. Tomorrow I will switch it out with Swiss Chard and beet greens. I will grind these in to green powder and add them to foods for more nutrition. Then I have some peppers and onions that need attention. After that I am hoping more strawberries and some blueberries.
I found a wonderful YouTube video that was very helpful to me when I began dehydrating:
There are several parts and they are all so helpful. If I have time this week I will upload a few videos of my own.
