Dehydrating Foods:

Dehydrating foods reduces the water content in food by evaporation. Removing water from food intensifies its flavors, ingredients often have a more concentrated, rich taste dehydrate fresh herb’s from the garden is easy, nutritious and packed with a flavourful punch.

All of the calories, fiber, flavor, minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins are all concentrated, so you get maximum nutrition while reducing the risk of spoilage. Dehydrating food can be an easy way to maintain the nutritional integrity in your favorite foods.

Preparing foods this way have a significantly longer shelf life compared to fresh ingredients they can last for months to years when they are stored properly. . Although some loss of nutrients is lost during the drying process, it is generally less than with other preservation methods.

You can also save money on packaged dried fruits and vegetables by making your own. Dehydrated fruits, vegetables, and meats make for healthy and convenient snacks that are free from additives and preservatives that can harm our body over time. You can make this fun by creating your own customized snack blends and flavor combinations. Some of my favorite easy snacks are making natural real fruit roll-ups. I can remember my mom making real fruit rollups in the oven and they were delicious!

 Here are a few of my favorite fruits and vegetables I love to dehydrate are pineapple, apples, and bananas, as well as vegetables like kale and broccoli, is a relatively simple process. You can use a food dehydrator or an oven to achieve this. For kale chips and broccoli  you can also season  with  olive oil, salt and spices) before dehydrating or one of my favorite ways to add a extra delicious kick is my non cheesy sauce! Ill add the recipe below

Fruit/Vegetable Dehydrating:

 To prepare you will need to :

  1. Choose fresh, ripe produce: Select fruits and vegetables that are in good condition and free from any bruises or blemishes. Wash and peel (if needed) the produce.
  2. Slice or chop: Depending on your preference, you can slice fruits and vegetables into uniform pieces. For fruits like pineapple, apples, and bananas, you can slices that are around 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick or for pineapple I sometimes cut them into cubed. For kale and broccoli, remove any tough stems and break or chop into bite-sized pieces.
  3. If you are using a dehydreator Preheat your dehydrator to around 125-135°F (52-57°C). the dehydrator appliance; “Excalibur” is the dehydrator I have and its so simple to use.
  4. Arrange the produce: Place the sliced or chopped pieces in a single layer on the dehydrator trays. Make sure there's some space between each piece to allow for proper air circulation.
  5. Dehydrate: The drying time will vary depending on the type of food, its thickness, and the humidity in your environment. It can take anywhere from 6 to 12 hours or longer. Check the food periodically to see if it's done. The food is ready when it is dry to the touch and has a leathery texture for fruits or is crispy for vegetables.
  6. Cool and store: Allow the dehydrated items to cool completely before storing them in airtight containers or vacuum-sealed bags. Store in a cool, dark place.
  7. If you are using a oven preheat to the lowest possible temperature, which is typically around 170-200°F (77-93°C).
  8. Prepare baking sheets: Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  9. Arrange the produce: Place the slices or pieces on the prepared baking sheets, ensuring they are in a single layer and not touching.
  10. Dehydrate: Keep the oven door slightly ajar to allow moisture to escape. This can be done by placing a wooden spoon or oven-safe prop in the door. The drying time will be longer than with a dehydrator, typically 6-12 hours or more. Check regularly to see if the food is fully dehydrated.
  11. Cool and store: Let the dehydrated food cool completely before transferring it to airtight containers or bags for storage. Store in a cool, dark place.
