Great Tips From Easy Food Dehydrating Visitors:
One of our site visitors, Paul Bee, wants to add this:
to the deli counter and get lean roast beef, turkey, or chicken and
have them slice it about 1/16 inch thick. When you get home, slice it
into strips and dehydrate. I use it for a quick snack or when camping.
As mentioned by Susan, freeze it until you are ready to use within the
time limit. Vacuum sealing keeps moisture from getting to the jerky."
– Thanks, Paul, for writing in!
Sarah in Australia wanted us to know this about canned chicken:
"I do a lot of dehydrating
for long hiking trips, and have found that the canned chicken (that
looks like canned tuna) in the supermarket (yes sounds gross) is the
only chicken I've been able to dehydrate that re-hydrates exactly like
it was prior. Taste and texture on re-hydration is perfect for chicken,
just remember to buy the low fat canned chicken".
Hi Sarah! That's really great to know! I actually have been known to use the 'canned chicken' in soups and chicken salad! :-) And yes, the low-fat stops rancidity when storing "long-term". Thanks so much for posting!
