Oops Lakeland Sale
« on: December 29, 2017, 13:16 »
I got notigication of this on Facebook & took a look,as you do, & & a half price dehydrator just fell in my basket. At £27 I thought it would be a good place to start without spending out too much on something I might not use much. Iím going shortly to collect it, what shall I dehydrate first I wonder, my cold might be a good start if I can get in lol

Not sure about dehydrated cold  :lol:

If you want to have a play, have a look for some reasonably priced fruit.  Pineapple and melon are pretty sensational as snacks, cereal toppers and baking ingredients. 

I recommend this one as well.  They dry perfectly in the dehydrator and you need the vitamin C (of course candied orange peel counts  ;))

The only book I have is Mary Bell's Complete Dehydrator Cookbook - its pretty old, but comprehensive.

There is loads on the internet and YouTube out there.  The Raw/Vegan sites can have some interesting ideas, but the basics for drying are pretty simple. I think the main way you take it all another level is by adding your own touches.

Dry another couple of apples, but dip some slices in orange juice, some in pineapple juice and some in lemon juice and water.  You could also sprinkle half of each type of dipped slice lightly with cinnamon.  This is all prior to drying btw,  6 options and they will all be different and all miles better than any dried apple ring you could buy  :)

You can also powder dried products and then they can be added to pastry, pasta, bread or cakes.  Mushroom and tomato are good savoury powders to have on hand.  Just leave them to settle for 10 minutes in the food processor before transferring them to an airtight jar, or you will wiping down the kitchen for ages.  Guess how I know this  :nowink:  :lol:

Thank you for the timely comment New Shoot  :lol: :lol:  I shall be grinding the dehydrated chillies in this coming week, and that reminder may make all the difference between success and no nasal membranes to speak of  :lol: :lol: :lol:

And Snowy, that is the dehydrator I have, and jolly good it is too :D :D :D

Try banana slices about 0.5cm thick for something akin to banana toffee. I have to ration these for the grandchildren  :lol: :lol:  Apple slices drifted with powdered cinnamon are a huge hit too

Thanks both, shall investigate all those in the new year. I suppose how long it takes depends on how thick you slice them? I brushed the very thin apple slices with undiluted lemon juice.
I thought £27 was a great bargain, how long have you had yours Sunny?

Three years. It came with a lifetime guarantee for the trays. These go through the dishwasher, and are easy to wipe clean in between.

The things on the bottom tray dry more quickly than those at the top, so I either rotate the trays every few hours, or put thicker sliced bits at the bottom.

The smell of whatever is drying fills the house, and whereas apple slices are delicious, when I am doing onion, garlic or chillies, the dehydrator gets plugged in out in th garage :lol:
