If you could only own 1 dehydrating book, what one would you pick????

I had 3 in my shopping cart and made myself close the window!!!! I have told myself I can not spend $40 on books, LOL

So I want to get your opinions on what is the "BEST" book.

Thanks, Bridge

Go to the library and check out any and all dehydrating books. You can even do interlibrary requests. Then buy the ONE you like best.

There is a woman on youtube.com with 13 clips on dehydrating. You can watch them when you want, take notes, etc. Just go to youtube.com, type dehydrate in the search window and her ID is Dehydrate2store. There are others you can watch also.

Here's a web site with up-to-date dehydrating information:

National Center for Home Food Preservation

http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/dry.html

They also include the new dehydrating standards where you use an acid-bath for many foods to help prevent bacteria growth - information you don't find in most of the books available.

I have several books on the subject, but Making & Using Dried Foods by Phyllis Hobson is my favorite, with Mary Bell's Complete Dehydrator Cookbook coming in a close 2nd. The best books not only tell you how to prepare the foods in a dehydrator, but also give recipes for how to use it.
