Been playing with a food dehydrator

It is a little bit tedious but the product is excellent once you get the hang of it.

Zucchini has a surprisingly intense flavor. Oranges are probably my favorite. I dried some chunks of lemon - super intense to the point of being almost inedible. Raisins are unlike any I've had.

Going to do some hot peppers and experiment with jerky.

I figure it has to be healthier than boxed and bagged snacks. Eating way too many calories is a definite risk.

Below was my first batch. I found out that blueberries are coated with wax and won't dry unless the wax is removed in boiling water first. Also discovered that most fruits and vegetables are better in chunks though it does take longer to dry that way.





This was part of my latest batch.
