    Smile Newbie from Tx

    Howdy!
    I retired from Nursing and Management Engineering and Computer Simulation. I have 2 daughters, 6 grands and 3 greats. Love traveling the world, cooking, gardening, reading, learning crochet, knitting and crafts.

    We are stepping back in time. In the sixties we grew our own veggies, made our yogurt and all our bread. Now we are doing it again only Gluten Free! LOL

    Recently purchased an Excalibar 3500 and started drying some items. How do I know if I am doing this right? The first grapes I did, I didn't dry long enough (only about 5 hours). They turned moldy. Second grapes took 24 hours and no mold yet.

    What are the easiest veggies and fruits to start drying? Any tips? Has anybody dried sausage and ground beef? How long can they be stored?

    Looking forward to participating in this group.
    Thanks,
    Linda

    welcome to the site. I dry onions and garlic and then powder them. I also love drying potato to have a mix ready of scalloped sure beats paying the prices for boxes of the stuff. I have not tried meat except for making jerky, but makes sense that it would work for ground beef as well. Hope you enjoy the site.
