    Default What's in Your Dehydrator - May 2010

    Kicking off the new month here - does everyone have their dehydrators revved up and raring to go?

    This morning I put in some strawberries. Had to toss out the bananas they hard cased. Now I'm trying the high to low heat method, putting them in at 145 for two hrs then turning it down to 120

    How's the high to low heat method working for you?

    What kind of peppers are you drying? I had been wondering if anyone here has tried drying jalapenos, and your post made me think of them.

    Got the pineapple done, for all the good it did me.

    They needed just a bit more.......but didn't matter, I was gardening and ate them all! Zoom into the garage....grab a slice....and back out into the yard....zoom in....before I knew it they were all gone!

    Not sure I am going to get to the chives before they go to seed.

    Dried pineapple is one of the tastiest snacks ever! We always scarf it down faster than we can dry more

    Yesterday I had in some spinach and some sweet red peppers. Today I have in pineapple. It smells soooooooo good! It will be gone as soon as it is done.

    I need to make some fruit leather soon. I think I will plan to do that this week. That goes in a flash too.

    It's eggplant that has been sliced and marinated. It makes for a salty bacon replacement once you have gotten it nice and crispy.
    This is my first time with this recipe so I'm unsure about the final results. I can let you know if it turns out any good.

    It's been a little quiet in here. Is everyone busy out in the garden, planting yummy foods to dehydrate?
