What Have You Put In Your Dehydrator?

Cherylptw | Dec 26, 2009 09:48 AM

My son, having recently been discharged from the Navy is now in school in Seattle and didn't come home for Christmas so I sent him a goodie basket with his gifts. He loves my Caribbean Jerk Seasoning blend that I make from scratch. So, I used the dehydrator to dry the ginger, jalapeno, scallions, onions, garlic, cilantro, lime rind etc. that goes into it. Once combined with allspice, thyme and the other spices, it was ground up and bottled. When he opened his basket yesterday, he was loving the smell of it and excited to use it.

While I was in dehydrator mode, I decided to dry ingredients for a later soup blend. I thinly sliced sweet potato, onion, etc for the soup, dehydrated and bagged it up. I had a bag of spinach from the store that I needed to do something with but knew I was not going to use it before it turned, so I dehydrated the spinach and bagged it up. I found myself looking for stuff to dehydrate....

How often do you use your dehydrator and what do do you dry?
