NEW! GNOWFGLINS Dehydrating eCourse & GIVEAWAY

I am super excited about Wardee's new dehydrating class coming in January.

I have a dehydrator and have used it to dry my soaked nuts, make dried oranges (to make orange powder), dried pineapple, dried mangoes (to make mango butter), oats and herbs.

But I am looking forward to really put my dehydrator to work! Check out the lessons & topics... I will be learning how to dehydrate a variety of ways with fruits, vegetables, herbs, beans, grains, eggs, dairy, broth, meats and how to utilize them in cooking and fermenting.

Can't wait! What about you? Wanna join me?

But I'm sure you have some questions first, such as...

What's The Big Deal About Dehydrating Foods?
Good question! Dehydrating foods have many qualities and they...
  • are lightweight and portable
  • store well at room temperature... so you don't need a freezer or root cellar
  • store for long periods of time, like a year or more!
  • retain vitamins, enzymes and other nutrition that would be lost if they were canned
  • are ideally suited for prepping, survival, camping or hiking
  • perserve the harvest to enjoy bounty all year round... from veggies to fruits to herbs to eggs to yogurt to broth and more!
  • "instant" foods you can throw together in a pinch if your circumstances prevent normal food prep
  • require much less time and energy than other preservation methods
  • and, of course, they taste great! (fruit leather or candied fruit, anyone?)

What Will I Learn to Dehydrate... Fruit Leather?
Drying foods covers a lot more than just making your own fruit leather! Did you know you can dry fruits, veggies, broth, meats, beans, grains, eggs, dairy, herbs, mother cultures, and more? You can even use your dried foods to make easy, almost instant soups, stews, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts.

Drying is a traditional practice that preserves the nutrition of foods — the naturally present vitamins and enzymes are retained, rather than being destroyed as they would be through canning or through high heat drying.

You can’t buy many healthy dried foods in stores. Instant soups and mashed potatoes are not “real” foods plus they include chemicals for shelf stability, texture, and taste. Many dried foods are sulphured to keep them soft and colorful.

To be fair, certain reputable companies make high quality dry foods — but these foods might be out of your budget.

It’s a great time to discover how to dry your own foods — you’ll save money, get a more healthful end result, and you’ll be better prepared for difficult circumstances.
