May I ask what kind of dehydrator you use? I've seen some Deals direct have and been tempted to buy one, but wasn't sure if it would be any good. Kaye B
Kaye, I have a EZIDRI ULTRA FD1000 it has the capacity to dry up to 30 trays of produce at one time. It is also capable of drying up to 20 trays of puree, for roll-ups, at one time. It comes with 5 trays, 1 Solid and 1 Mesh Liner and is expandable to 30 trays, which of course costs a fortune to buy! I'm saving up for more trays etc.It was a manual temperature control which is great so when the power goes out it starts again at the right temp. We get a lot of electrical interruptions here. The temperature range is important too, you want to use the lowest temperatures possible so to not compromise nutrition :o)HTH
Thanks so much for that info. Because we live in a relatively small house, I have been thinking- storage wise - dried produce would be fantastic to have. Do you rehydrate anything you dry? Or just prefer the dried forms i.e. fruit etc. We don't experience many power outages but it is great to hear that it will start again at selected temp. thanksKaye B
Kaye, I don't do vegetables that you would be more likely to re-hydrate. Not because I don't like them just a time thing. My in-laws do, they to onion, mushrooms etc for soups.We mostly do fruits, rolls ups, and tomatoes that we then blend to make tomato paste powder. It lasts for over a year. Really really handy!
