Far from being a fad, food dyhydrating is one of the most ancient, effective, and nutritous ways of preserving food. Now, at last, there is a book that teaches absolutely everything there is to know about using an electric food dyhydrator to dry foods at home -- and gives more than 100 foolproof recipes for scrumptious snacks and meals made from dried foods.
With this extraordinary book, you can learn how to cross junk food and expensive store-bought snacks off your family's shopping list -- and add to your cupboard homemade, preservative-free fruit leathers, candied apricots, beef (and fish) jerkies, "sun" dried tomotoes, corn chips, banana chips, and so much more!
Mary Bell gives specific techniques and instructions for preparing every kind of fruit (from apples to watermelon) and vegetable (from asparagus to zucchini). She also provides important shopping tips for buying an electric food dehydrator. The recipes for cooked meals (including mushroom soup, sloppy joes, pesto, and moist banana bread) will make this book a kitchen classic. And recipes for lightweight, filling trail snacks mean that the book will travel, too.
Additional chapters explain to how make herb seasonings, granolas, celery powder, cosmetics, dried fruit sugars, potpourri -- and even pet treats!

The book is great! The author is obviously very knowledgeable about dehydrating, and she also includes some great looking recipes! The best thing about the book, is she tells you HOW to dehydrate anything you would/ could want to!!! Only bummer, it took FOREVER to get here!!! And since it was delivered by usps, there was no easy way of tracking it!!! Oh well, I guess it was worth the wait!Read More
When reading the synopsis of this book, it sounded perfect....but it ends up being a disappointment. Not much useable information about the dehydration process of different foods. It's made up more of recipes using the dehydrated items. I am doing a lot of dehydrating right now, and I've not found any help in this particular book on "how to", "how long", etc.However, if you are a jerky lover -- you might like this book. Lots of recipes and info about jerky.Read More
