Title: Food to Dry For
Post by: AL WORRELLS KID on October 17, 2021, 09:25:22 PM
Now is the time of year that I seem to have more stuff coming in from the garden than I know what to do with, so lately our Dehydrator has come in real handy.
Cherry Tomatoes and Peppers being it's latest victims. We have had a good crop of both this year, the Dried Habanero's should really put some Pizazz on our Pizza's.  :tup:

Nice!
A dehydrator is a great thing to have.
Especially this time of year. You get to heat your house and dehydrate your food all at the same time.  :tup:

Our dehydrator was running constantly ( empty one load 7 trays refill with another) finally had to move it outside

I'm getting more into dehydrating fruits/veggies. Have only done jerky in the past. I just did about 25# of honeycrisps in slices that the kid can't get enough, and just completed 20# of jerky.

Had big plans for my dehydrator this fall. Problem was nothing produced but the cucumbers. Total of 6 jalapeno peppers, no decent tomatoes or any thing else I planted. Every thing shut down with the 1st heat wave and locked up.

Those apple chips are awesome in the oven too, gets em a little crunchier just like the Bare store bought ones. These days our dehydrator spends most of its time as a brass dryer  :chuckle:

One of my favorites is to slice up bosc pears and put them in pineapple juice for a few minutes and then dehydrate them. It's like candy!
And the digestion system loves them too  :)

I just made another batch of mushroom and pepper spice. A quick suburban foraging run for Slippery Jacks, some jalapenos (or whatever other spicy peppers you find in the garden, market, etc.) and a little tomato. A couple trays of chips in the Big Chief smoker, then to the dehydrator. After it's dry, I grind it and keep it in a Mason jar. It's an amazing smoky, earthy spice for adding to BBQ rubs, in sauces, eggs...
