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.
