    Well second, well, actually, I guess third Bought a new LEM 778 dehydrator online the other day, and it showed up yesterday. So I took out some ground moose meat and some ground caribou meat to thaw to make jerky, and in the mean time, I put a bag of frozen mixed veggies on to play with my...

    We just got a dehydrator as a early xmas gift and are excited. I am wanting to try some recipes that could be used as gifts also, soups, etc.. I have done searches and found some, but thought maybe some FVers may have some tried and true recipes they would like to share. Thanks in advance for...

    Dh and I are wanting to try some dehydrating, but not sure where to start. We have a toaster oven with a dehydrator setting on it. It is a Oster 6058, we got it practically new from a friend of his, but it came with no instruction booklet. Therefore, we have only used it for small baking and...

    I've been wanting a dehydrator for a long time. I haven't shelled out the money for an excalibur because I was concerned I wouldn't use it enough and it's quite big to store and not too cheap. Anyway, I saw a new dehydrator at the thrift store. It's an Oster which are not expensive dehydrators...

    I thought someone here may like this. I know someone who has one, dries food right in her living room. She likes it because it fold flat when not in use.

I am really interested in the mushrooms as I use lots but can't get them on sale too often. Does...

    Same question only for Chicken. How do I dehydrate it? Again, You Tube bites on my computer. Can I use my Lawrys marinade on it? How about Turkey while we're at it...when I fix a turkey we normally have a bunch left. Thanks in advance

    I'm not to have red meat according to my biggie. However every once in a while I pick up a small bag of flavored beef jerky on the way out of the store. It's went up so much in price when it was already high in the first place that I don't do it anymore. Besides I paid for...

    I apologize if this is a duplicate -- I couldn't find one for this month. After months of not using my dehydrator, I dried four packages of celery last week and just put in 9 trays of sweet potato slices this morning. Our store had 40 lb. boxes on sale for $14.88 and it's going to take along...

    Well, it isn't a fancy one but today I bit the bullet and got myself a Salton dehydrator from Wal-Mart. It was $40. :eek: (I have a lot of trouble spending money like that right now!) I've wanted one for quite a while but decided to wait until after I moved. I got apples and strawberries...

    I have been wanting one for a long time, never tried this before. What does everyone think of them? I remember reading somewhere before that the "home made" stuff is better then bought dehydrated foods...what does everyone think? How much do they normally cost to purchase? Any other info...
