An Easy Guide for Vegetables
This helps if you cannot afford to buy in bulk, and can only buy
vegetables on a weekly basis. Time to get growing your own, you say? :-)
Most of us do not have tons of spare room in our fridges and
freezers. Before you go out buying too much, here's a handy guide
that shows you roughly how many vegetables will fit on four dehydrator
trays. Please remember this is just a guide. It's not an exact science...
4 Trays is THE Minimum to Use
for Nesco Dehydrators
The reason why I picked how many vegetables does it take to fill four full trays is this: FOUR trays is the Nesco dehydrator brand's recommended minimum tray usage.
If you use any less than four full trays, for instance, only two trays, then you are not getting the proper air circulation necessary to dry your vegetables properly.
Read more about Nesco dehydrators here. They have plenty of great accessories, such as spare trays (I purchased the four-tray starter Nesco); non-stick sheets which are great for making fruit leathers. The non-stick sheets are also great for stopping smaller pieces of food from dropping down into the tray below. When food dries, shrinkage occurs.
Excalibur dehydrators also have the non-stick sheets for the same purpose as Nesco.

Nesco and Excalibur Brands
are Super Dehydrators
As mentioned in our dehydrator section, I have an Excalibur dehydrator and a Nesco dehydrator.
