Dehydrating your harvest

We invested in a dehydrator a couple of years ago. One of our better investments. You can preserve many of the veggies and fruit and berries that you grow. They will keep for a very long time and a real treat to munch on during the long winter months. I came across a gal (her name is Tammy) who I think is one of the best teachers in all phases of drying food. You can find her over at http://dehydrate2store.com/ Check out her site and have fun learning about drying and preserving your food.
