dehydrate fruits and begetables

Last year we dehydrated apples, mangoes, zucchini, mushrooms, just to name a few. They are still sitting in jars. The fruit is too hard to snack on, I tried. If anyone knows what I can do with all of the dehydrated stuff please share it. It is too hard to chew on and also thard to turn into powder.

    Last year we dehydrated apples, mangoes, zucchini, mushrooms, just to name a few. They are still sitting in jars. The fruit is too hard to snack on, I tried. If anyone knows what I can do with all of the dehydrated stuff please share it. It is too hard to chew on and also thard to turn into powder. I'm wondering if we over dehydrated them, if so how can I tell when they are done. I was worried if there was moisture in them that it would get moldy.

    I've owned various brands of electric dehydrators and have been
    dehydrating foods for about 10 years. I love the convenience of dried
    foods for meal prep as well as lunch boxes, snacking, etc. My dd (our
    picky eater) is hooked on my dried fruits and her classmates beg her to
    share her dehydrated fruit and fruit roll-ups with them. I like that you
    can use up produce that would otherwise go rotten, I can stock up on
    produce when it goes on sale and eat it year round, the finished product
    takes up so little space (you'd be shocked at how compact it becomes)

    and everything is preservative & dye free. As a bonus, it is fun drying
    foods and getting creative.

    Why not rehydrate them and use them to cook with?

    Try rehydrating them in hot liquid, or putting them in soups or stews.

    In the old days pioneers always dried fruit, in Jan/Feb when they wanted fruit they cooked it up in pies .. rehydrate and save the cooking juice for oatmeal (add some busted pieces of apple & cinnamon to plain oatmeal)

    here&#39;s a link with lots of dried apple pie recipes ..

    if you hate them use for wreaths for gifts
