We got a dehydrator for Christmas.

I'm dying to use it.

But what should I put in it?

Any suggestions?

Not beef jerky yet. We need to get the meat sliced.

This summer I'll use it for my herbs...but not many herbs now.

So...I need suggestions...

What do you guys dry in the winter.

Have a Blessed Evening


  1. We have a dehydrator, but haven't used it in a while! You can do so much - fruits and veggies are great dried! Have fun!

  2. Try sliced bananas. They are delicious!

  3. Hi Lisa, nice pressie!!!
    I would suggest you try onions slice your onions a little thicker than usual, dip them in boiling water for a bit and spread out on your trays. I found videos on youtube how to do it, go have a look there. I then put them in a glass container with a little piece of paper towel, that kept them dry and cracking. I use a lot of onions so buy the big 10kg bags, this way I don't waste any going rotten on me. I get long red chillies which I just slice in half, stem, pits and all, place in the dryer as is and then store in a glass jar, looks very pretty too. If you decide to do sundried tomatoes, tip from a Italian lady, use vegetable oil and not olive! Mushrooms are easy too but I personally don't like the taste of them when cooked afterwards.Keep paper in the jars cause they go soft too. Paper absorbs any moisture. Have fun with it.


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
