Dehydrated equivalent to fresh
I'm looking for a chart or list of dehydrated equivalent to fresh.
Say a recipe calls for 5 apples..how much dried would I reconstitute to make 5 apples?
6 stalks of celery= how much celery powder or dried celery slices?
1 medium onion= how much dried chopped onion?
2 lbs. zucchini= how much dried powdered or sliced?
I'm ready to start incorporating some of my dried into regular recipes.
Can some one lead me in the right direction?
Kind'a sounds like: Johnny had 7 big red apples, he ate one and gave Sarah 2. How many apples did Johnny have to dehydrate?

You are SO awesome.
How you ever found this I don't know.
Thanks a mint; I'm off to a good start now.
Your time and response are appreciated.

a question only fv would understand...
That chart is helpful but I have a question about bananas. Does it include the peel weight in the fresh weight?
A grocery store here in Portland has bananas on special for 18 cents a pound. If I buy 10 pounds (gotta pay for those peels) and make banana chips, how many dried chips will that make? Well how many pounds--don't expect any numbers of individual chips.

I would guess it includes the peels.
BTW......FYI.........the smaller bananas are 'generally' more flavorful..........not the monsters that some stores carry. And not those little tiny things that have recently come on the market.....just a smaller regular 'nana. (learned that in Costa Rica........from the 'nana growers)
