    • How to Use Dried Food in Recipes

      You will need to soak or cook your dried foods before using them in recipes. Some foods require soaking and cooking.

      Vegetables are usually soaked between 1/2 to 1-1/2 hours and then simmered. Some vegetables can be re-hydrated while they are cooking.

      Fruits are soaked, and then cooked in the water they were soaked in. Don't add extra sugar until the fruit is cooked; otherwise, the fruit may be tough. Fruits are sometimes eaten in their dry state as snacks.

      You must remember that after a food is re-hydrated, it may spoil quickly, so use it promptly.

      To cook dried food, use the following information and simmer until tender.
      • Apples: Add 1 1/2 C. warm water to 1 C. apples and soak for 1/2 hour.
      • Beans, green: Add 2 1/4 C. boiling water to 1 C. beans and soak for 1 1/2 hours.

      • Carrots: Add 2 1/4 C. boiling water to 1 C. carrots and soak for 1 hour.
      • Corn: Add 2 1/4 C. boiling water to 1 C. Corn and soak for 1/2 hour.
