We did it… we now have a dehydrator. I have been wanting one for years, especially since last year when I borrowed a dehydrator for my placental encapsulation process but there were things that I wanted/needed more that needed to be crossed off the list first… Now the time had come for it to be at the top and we went for it and I am so happy!
I went with the Excalibur 3900 and I am glad I did. It might be big, but we fill up the 9 trays easily.
I have been having so much fun finding things around the house to dehydrate… Apples, Oranges, Strawberries, pineapple, herbs etc…
The kids of course are having a blast eating it all…
One of the finds in the back of my cupboard was some Plum-Vanilla Apple sauce that I had made 2 years ago. I mixed in a bit of blueberry syrup that a friend gave me and I poured it out onto the trays and made the greatest Fruit roll ups!
Khéna is really enjoying the apples… He is not a big fruit eater, so if he will eat more like this, I have no problem making a new batch every few days especially because I found a permanent place on my counter for the dehydrator (Not an easy task with the size of that thing)
I loved the Pineapple and Wilhelmina is enjoying the strawberries….
There are so many things that I can’t want to try… Next time I make a creamy soup, instead of freezing the leftovers and forgetting about them, I am going to try dehydrating it and storing it within arms reach for a quick homemade cup of soup… I can also make flax crackers… and jerky…
There are so many possibilities!
