    Drying food for storage is great, but the point is to eventually eat it. Are you eating the foods you've dehydrated? What have you done with them lately? Please share your experiences with eating the foods you've dried!

    I have various dehydrated fruits that I use in baking on a regular basis. I made my own celery powder and diced onions that I cook with. I have beef jerky that I made.

    I use everything I dehydrate.

    I make cinnamon apple slices, dried pineapple slices, and dried tomatoes and fruit leathers for snacks.

    I get huge bags of mixed vegetables from the local Cash&Carry food service store and dehydrate them. Use them in casseroles, soups, etc.

    I dry green/red/orange/yellow peppers and mix in guacamole mix. Onions, cranberries, grapes for raisins.

    Nothing lasts long in my house!

    The only thing I dried this year was herbs and peppers. Been using both. The dried sweet peppers I use in sloppy joe mix, and the hot peppers go into chili and soups.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    I always use lots of celery in the winter for making soups. Had to catch some sales and make some more.

    I have been enjoying my applesauce leather that I made recently but it is almost all gone now.
