Dehydrating Cabbage: Yes, it can be done and is one of those
vegetables that doesn't immediately spring to mind as being able to
dehydrate – because it seems so dry to begin with – and it works very well!
A plus when slicing is that one head of cabbage goes a long way... and it's a great source of vitamin A, vitamin K, and Folate.
It's not lacking in the mineral department either: it's a great
source of Potassium and a good source of Calcium, Phosphorus with trace minerals Selenium, Zinc, and Manganese.
Cabbage also contains Omega-6 fatty acids too.
I love to add shredded dehydrated cabbage to my vegetable soups, just
drop it in – it's that easy– and it cooks along with the rest of the
vegetables. Of course cabbage is used for the traditional coleslaw too. What summer picnic would be complete without it?

Don't forget to add cabbage to your vegetable smoothies too. It's a delicious way to "eat yer veggies!"
How to Dehydrate Cabbage
- There's not much preparation; simply remove the outer leaves
(these can be saved for making stuffed cabbage rolls for instance) and
rinse if necessary under cold water. Start slicing it into thin strips,
about 1/8" wide
- Arrange on your food dehydrator trays. The cabbage may overlap a bit, but that's OK
- Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
- Fully dehydrated cabbage will be brittle when fully dried.
- Drying time: between 7-11 hours.
- Please remember to rotate your dehydrator trays, for even drying.

It's hard to believe, isn't it, that one head of cabbage filled seven Nesco dehydrator trays – and when you're done, it ALL fits into this soup bowl!
Store your cabbage in Mason jars for using often for soups etc., or store in vacuum-sealed bags for long-term food storage.
