Sounds great. Good idea to concentrate on items you want that could be difficult to get in the future. Out of curiosity how are you storing these when you’re done?

I’ve got a small dehydrator that hasn’t been used in years. I have some bananas that are ripe so perhaps I’ll see if it’s still working. Otherwise, I picked up a newer one for the GF around the holidays and she’s using it. I may be outsourcing my dehydrating…lol.

Drying, Dehydrating, & Smoking • Testing our dehydrator

Just got through loading 4 of the 5 trays on our dehydrator. We haven’t used it much decided to run a few trays through it. !tray is tomato slices. 1 tray of lemon slices. 1 tray of orange slices. 1tray is 1/2 oranges and the other half cumquats.Started the dehydrating by running it at 165 for thirty minuets, then down 135. When this load is done we bought a pineapple, to try out. How do you tell if a pineapple is ripe. :) I think I will be drying some foods we don’t or can’t grow locally.
