      And a Blessed Yule to your family as well Liss!

      What Creative, fun, homemade gifts would you make if you won this Fantastic Nesco Food Dehydrator?

      I’d make some of those homemade dip ornaments I saw on your FB page last week! I’d also like to make my own Deer Jerky with some of the meat we have in the freezer.

      We’d probably use this most to dry herbs from our herb garden and give packages of seasoning mixes to our friends and family. They’re so expensive to purchase and between this and a small spice grinder, we’d be all set for gifts next year!

      Happy Yule! snowball fight smilie

      I have a very old dehydrator that I use to make jerky treats for my dog (chicken, sweet potato, etc). I also make banana chips. I can’t do too much with it, would love to have this new model so I could do other things with it

    • #445921

      Just think of all the fruit I can dry for fried pies………….Or doggie treats too

    • #445922

      fried fruit pies with dehydrated fruit and tons of doggie treat for my show dogs.

      I was actually looking at one of these at the store last night! I would make dried fruit..like strawberries, blueberries, kiwi and pineapple for healthy snacks for the kids (and me!) Also treats for our pekinese as he is allergic to many of the store bought treats. And beef/turkey/chicken jerky in lots of different flavor combinations!

      I would love to learn to make beef jerky and fruit roll ups.

    • #445935

      A new dehydrator would allow me to dry the fruits and vegetables we grow to store and share with family and friends. We live in a repressed area where sometimes food is a premium that some can little afford. By having this, I could dry during the harvest months to share during the winter months….

    • #445942

      I’d love to make the cinnamon apple fruit rolls in a dehydrator instead of in the oven! This is my FAVORITE recipe right here: Budget101.com – – Cinnamon Apple Fruit Roll Snack | Homemade Fruit Leathers They are so Awesome!

    • #445946

    • #445947

      I would make dried flower arrangements for my Son’s wedding in June. I would also make my own trail mix with dried fruits and nuts. The possibilities are endless and would be so much fun to see what I could do with a great item like this.

    • #445949

      My husband, children, and neighbors love jerky. We raise cattle and my husband and son are deer hunters so we would use the dehydrator primarily for making all kinds of jerky. As for myself, I love fruit leathers made from my very own fruit trees.

      If I won thid dehydrator, I would love to make cinnamon ornaments. You mix cinnamon with applesauce into a thick dough, roll out and cut with cookie cutters. then let dry on a cooling rack for days and days…with a dehydrator, I would be able to have these dried in just a day.

      I would also have enough room to many a lot of these for the teachers and all grandparents.

    • #445940

      I would love to win to make deer jerky for our grand kids.

    • #445954

      I lost my job in September so the only thing I can do for gifts is homemade this year. I would make some yummy elk jerky, my son got a big one this year.

    • #445990

      My grandsons love fruit, but during the winter it is expensive. So I would dry them fruit to eat all winter long.

    • #445994

      I would make fruit snacks to give my daughters and jerky for my husband.

    • #445996

      The grandkids are big fans of fruit leather I make with applesauce and sugar free Jello mixed together. It’s healthy but not loaded with sugar, so better for their teeth. My 18 month old granddaughter is teething, and she loves the bite the soft rolled leather and enjoy the flavors.

      She may get sticky, but she’s happy!

    • #445999

      As we have gone all organic in this household .. we grow all our own veggies and herbs, this would help so much to preserve goodies for our family 🙂

      It’s a wonderful idea 🙂

    • #445997

      To start with…jerky is always a great treat to give. I could also make an dried apple wreath scented with cinnamon. Great aroma for the holidays.

      Mason jars full of dried fruit candy is also a great gift for the “hostess with the mostess”.1heartjar smilie

    • #445941

      I’d make some deer jerky and some dried fruit! 🙂

    • #445938

      We’ve been happily consuming beef jerky at a couple of different street fairs. My son said it would be really cool if we could make jerky ourselves and try other things like fish. He has me intrigued and winning this dehydrator would be fantastic.

      Dried fruit snacks for on the go!

      What Creative, fun, homemade gifts would you make if you won this Fantastic Nesco Food Dehydrator?

      I have a very old dehydrator that I have dried my herbs in and given as gifts my family loves the fact that they know exactly where the herbs came from and that it is fresh. I also dried fruit which was a big hit with everyone including my son. I would prefer him to eat these for snacks than other non healthy treats.

      I found some recipes on this site that I would love to try but my dehydrator does not have a fan and although I was able to use it I have put it away because it takes so long and is very big and bulky so I don’t have room for it.

      I am going to have my very own garden this year and plan on growing a lot of herbs and vegetables which would be very nice dried for the winter. I would love to make mixes for soups with dehydrated vegetables to give as gifts for everyone.

    • #446018

      I would love to win a Nesco Food Dehydrator…..I dry fruit, make fruit leathers every year…..A collection of dried fruit snakes and leathers always make wonderful presents…any time of year!

    • #446019

      My 90-year-old mother’s parents were both Hungarian and apricots are a favorite in Hungarian cuisine, and my mother loves dried apricots. What a treat it would be to send her some that I made myself.

    • #446021

      I would dehydrate Apple and orange slices, and make a garland with them, popcorn and cranberries. I would then decorate a tree outside, for the birds and other animals with this garland and Pinecone/Birdseed ornaments, so that nature could enjoy the Christmas Season too.

    • #446022

      I would dehydrate flowers, fruits, spices and even herbs, to make a homemade potpourri and give it to friends as gifts.

    • #446026

      I would take fresh veggies, and chicken and homemade noodles and make homemade chicken noodle soup mix to give to my friends when they are sick:)

    • #446028

      With all the news about Jerky dog treats from China, I make my own chicken jerky for my dogs. I also make deer jerky. Since I’m a gardener, I have lots of fruit and vegetables that I need to dry. I like to dehydrate onions and garlic for my own minced spices. I really, really need one of these.

    • #446031

      I love to cook so I would love to make my friends various gourmet spice mixes made from fresh herbs from my garden.

      What I would make, hum… I would dry all the fruit I could for baking. I would dry veggies for soups, snacks, salads. I am eating healthier now, so drying food would fit right in to my new healthy life style. I like to make health snacks for when my kids come over on Holidays. No chips or soda. Everything is natural and fresh. I am trying to set an example to them that healthy eating should be a life style change, everyone should be doing!

      Yum!

    • #446032

      A dehydrator would come in very handy for making venison jerky for my soon to be father-in-law and regular jerky for the 2 big boys in the house instead of paying over $20 a pound for it in the store…. I would also use it to make hand and foot print molds of our new baby to give as Christmas presents. Not to mention the yummy dried fruit and fruit leather, and preserving herbs and veggies from the garden in the summer!

    • #446033

      I would love a dehydrator so I can utilize all the fruits and vegetables when they are in
      season so I can have them whenever I like. We have a banana and mango tree and I dry these and keep them for cakes. Wow this would be so nice.

      O.eould use Bhtapes cranberries, apricots, mangoes and apples and the list goes on of fruit. My son is a boy scout and my husband is a leader and for long hikes protein and carbohydrate rich trail mix is a must but so many fruits are filled with chemicals.and I want them to have tasty, satisfying and healthy trail mix to keep up their energy the long trails.

      i know that everyone seems to want to make jerky but i really want to try some of these dehydrated veggie soups and seasoning mixes! i’d love to make the homemade fruit powders to add to our yogurt or oatmeal everyday. I’d love to come up with some of my own homemade dip mixes too.

      I’ve used my electric oven to make jerky and it was ok but it seemed pretty expensive on the electric bill so maybe the dehydrator is the ticket

    • #446051

      I would make fruit roll ups for the grandkids lunch treats at school.

    • #446052

      Happy Yule! The dehydrator would make my whole household happy – banana and papaya and pineapple chips to keep the angora bunnies happy and healthy (helps prevent woolblock); jerky for the dogs, a good way to save all those tomatoes. For the kids, fruit roll ups!

      It would be great to make fruit leather from the autumn olive berries and reduce the spread of that invasive tree. Thanks for running the contest, Liss!

    • #446053

      I love dehydrators, I grow my own herbs and make all my own spice mixes, love giving these as gifts. Also, love making fruit rolls, dehydrate veggies to make my own cooking mixes, they make nice gifts as well. The fruit rolls can be used to decorate cookies for a healthier cookie.

    • #446054

      I would make fruit rollups for the grandkids, jerky for my sons,and dry fruit for me to bake with

    • #446059

    • #446062

      If I won this I would use this to make some of the recipe’s I have learned to make in the raw foods class that I attend monthly with my fiance’ Jayme. It is not all salads and vegetables. There are recipes for spaghetti and meatballs and german chocolate cake.

      There are also others like meatloaf or pasta and sauce with sausages. All of this is made without a bit of meat or eggs or real pasta. Some of it needs to be warmed up but an oven is too hot in temperature so this would work perfectly.

      The food can be warmed to about 110 degrees but any warmer than that it would ruin the nutritional value of the food. I would also use it to dry out fruits and vegetables. Banana chips are an amazing snack that are so expensive in the stores.

      I would LOVE it if I won this.

      I would make all natural trail mix in decorated jars as gifts for my friends and family. The uses for a good dehydrator are endless if you use your imagination and know how to vacuum seal the foods you create.

      [/B]What Creative, fun, homemade gifts would you make if you won this Fantastic Nesco Food Dehydrator?

      After I moved to NY from MI, all of my grown children complained how they missed my homemade soups, and soup is almost impossible to send through the mail, but… with a dehydrator, I could make up bags of soup starter that would mail easily! I would also send them dehydrated veggies from my garden, another item they’ve missed.

      eat-1  smilieI would make grilled peach pie in penni wrap…with powdered sugar on top. worthy  smilie Everybody loves a little sweet treat of their own…even the kids can hold one…we will also try strawberries…with warm chocolate dribbled on the warm pasta.
      I hopes this helps me win, if not…we will still enjoy each other on a budget! Happy Holiday’s!

      I have always wanted to dehydrate my own fresh vegetables. I love home made soups and getting the fresh stuff in season –esp. from others garden– and saving it until the time when we want to make the soups would be awesome. Plus I have missionary friends who eat as much home made as possible and this would help me to help them stock up.

      Oooh, this would be fun! Dried orange slices for room deodorizer/decor, dried apple crafts, the applesauce/cinnamon ‘dough’ things (when they are dry, they smell so good, and the scent lasts ages!), salt dough ornaments, munchies like jerky and dried fruits, and dried veggies for soup for people like my mom, who really don’t want anything that’s not useful… There is so much I could make with one of these babies!!!

      I would make use of the dehydrator by working with tomatoes…..then once dried to perfection would carefully place them in decorative jelly jars….the red color and the freshness of a summer tomatoe in December will sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.
