There had been quite a rush to get the very last of the seasons harvest in and put up. Not only did I freeze lots more from the garden and CSA this year because we invested in a huge freezer, but also because I was much more dedicated to it. I love my new freezer, but the whole family really enjoys everything that emerges from the new dehydrator!
I was kindly forced to purchase a dehydrator at a yard sale by a friend I was shopping with (thanks Kristi). Since then I have experimented with all sorts of produce & herbs, anything is fair game.
I dry lots of fruit, but none of it lasts long enough for pictures. It amazes me that things the Monkeys won’t take in their lunches fresh, they jump at the chance dried: apples especially lately. I guess we all get a little over-dosed on the current seasons fresh fruit.
The dehydrator has been great for the herbal harvest especially on those rainy fall days, I could still pick the last from the garden and not worry about mold. I know next yard sale season I’m hunting for extra trays for this model or looking to trade up because tonight I have requests for more apple chips and to try banana chips too.
