It's NOT over ... yet

Welcome - to issue 7 of
Easy Food Dehydrating Depot!

Unless you happen to live under a rock, I'm sure you've all read and heard about the attempt to 'get the USA's debt under control'.

The decision to raise the 'debt ceiling' once again, only re-inforces, to me, that we need to really get serious at home, and start dehydrating fresh foods in earnest ... before food prices really hit the roof.

Growing Herbs -- Indoors!

As you may know, I've been trying to grow lettuce from seed, down here in Florida, with dismal results. So I cleaned out the seeds, put in new soil, and planted small specimens of Rosemary, Thyme, Basil - and a transplant from outdoors: Parsley. I know these will do much better than my lettuce-attempts! :-)

There's nothing like the taste of fresh herbs in your cooking - and store-bought bunches are very expensive, so my husband picked up some small plants at the local home-store. They were still in their peat pots and you leave them in those pots as they are biodegradable. Prior to planting, you remove the lower half of the pot, plant it, and remove the excess 'rim'. This really helps prevent transplant shock immensely.

At night, I leave a fluorescent light on (it's an old Banker's lamp stacked on some old books to give it height!) and that's working well, as they don't get any direct sunlight where they are at present.

Frequently Asked Questions

Stacey asks: "Can you use pre made mixes for long term storage if I put it in individual jars with oxy absorbers? The spice mix that comes with pre packaged mixes like the boxed dinners or potatoes, should it be opened and poured in jar or left in its original package?" Check out the answer right here FAQ page 2. Thanks for writing in Stacey!
