I'm having so much fun with my new dehydrator.
So far I've dehydrated more herbs, lots of apples, peppers and onions.
The children are loving the apples. I think most of what I dried are already gone. They were perfect for stuffing in a pocket for a hike.
As usual, my onions were starting to go bad.
Dehydrating them will hopefully give me some onions over winter.
I blended them to add to soups and casseroles.
I am amazed at how much less space dried vegetables take.
I started with a sink full of colorful peppers,
chopped them up, dehydrated them,
and they all fit in a pint jar!
For those interested, the dehydrator I was given is similar to this one. (You can click on the picture to get more info from Amazon.)
I have been very pleased with the speed and the ability to choose different temperatures.
But now I need help. I know how to use dried herbs or apples, but how I do I use something like dried peppers? Should I soak them in boiling water before cooking with them?
I'd appreciate any information you can give on dehydrating, especially on re-hydrating. If you have written about it or know where to find good web info, I'd love if you share the link!
