At Easy Food Dehydrating, I'll show you how to dehydrate frozen foods too. When fresh isn't available seasonally, buy it frozen when it's on sale at your grocery store.
Grab bags of frozen peas and corn—onions too!
Frozen foods are great—you'll be able to skip step two of the six dehydrating steps—by buying frozen. Some foods need blanching prior to dehydrating. The food manufacturers have already done this step prior to freezing!
OK, so you want to know why would you want to dehydrate frozen food? Aren't they already suitably packaged for long-term storage? Great question... and the answer is in a nutshell: frozen foods thaw when the power goes out, unfortunately.
When you have dried goods stored properly, you don't have to worry about the power going out for extended periods!
Dehydrate food instead of throwing it down the disposal because you "forgot about it" in the bottom drawer of the refrigerator—or because you had too much left over at the end of the season!
Both are perfectly good reasons to dehydrate food. Use it up to make healthy hiking food and picnic treats.
