What's The Ideal Temperature For Dehydrating Vegetables?

Most vegetables are best dehydrated between 125°F and 135°F – any hotter than that and you may cause the dehydrated vegetables to get a hard crust – this is known as 'case hardening' and we need to prevent this from occurring.

Case hardening prevents the inside of the vegetable from drying properly so don't be tempted to turn the food dehydrator on high to speed up the process!

Mushrooms are the one vegetable that need special attention. Read more about mushrooms HERE.




Preparation for Dehydrating Veggies

Some vegetables can be washed and sliced and dried with no further preparation necessary. All frozen vegetables can be placed on your dehydrator trays with no further preparation.

Please use the dehydrating vegetable clickable pictures at the top of the page for each specific vegetable.

Before opening your bag of frozen vegetables, throw the bag onto your kitchen counter-top a few times to loosen any frozen vegetables that may have frozen together in a clump!

If you have a few small persistent clumps, run the clump under cold water for a few seconds and that will fix it!

Or even easier than all that – leave the bag of frozen vegetables unopened in your kitchen sink for about an hour and they'll be good for slicing, if and when necessary.

Certain vegetables like fresh carrots, need to have a generous spraying of lemon juice.

We use lemon juice as a totally acceptable substitute for ascorbic acid which is used by professional dehydrating plants, and lemon juice works wonderfully! Two reasons for spraying with lemon juice is to prevent the vegetables from darkening, and to prevent bacterial growth during drying.




Dehydrated Veggies are Dry When ...

... they don't stick together! While you are dehydrating veggies – and you think they are dry enough – place the veggies in airtight bags (such as Ziploc bags), and let them hang around your kitchen for a day or overnight.

This is known as conditioning and this enables the air and any moisture in the bag to distribute evenly – so that the dehydrated vegetables will be ready for vacuum sealing!
