Dehydrating peas is the easiest of all vegetables, they rank right up there with corn! If you choose to use a frozen variety, it's just a case of opening the bag, pouring them onto your dehydrator trays (I use one of the mesh screens to make sure they don't fall through the dehydrator tray openings), and pushing the "dehydrate" button! – or if you're lucky and have your own garden, dehydrate fresh ones obviously!
It goes without saying that they are great for use in Soups and Stews! Here's a great pea soup recipe for you! It's one of my dad's favorite soups that I make!
Peas are a fantastic source of vitamin A, followed by vitamin C, Choline, and Niacin.
There are trace amounts of Thiamin, Pantothenic Acid, Riboflavin, vitamin B6, and vitamin K. Their minerals: a good source of Potassium, followed by Phosphorus, Magnesium, and Calcium.
They also have trace amounts of Iron, Zinc, Manganese, Copper, and Selenium and contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
These are are one of the easiest vegetables out there to do – and even easier if you choose the frozen variety! I love smoothing them out on my trays!
Remember to wear your latex gloves – they help stop heat transference – and that means your peas WON'T stick to your HANDS! :-) This way, you can smooth them out on the trays easily.
If you are using frozen peas, ignore step 1.
