Dehydrating is the easiest food preservation method and there is only a small learning curve to get started.
Basically, you’ve got dehydrating covered if you can chop food, blanch vegetables, and know what a specific food should look like when it is dry. That makes dehydrated food easy to get into your pantry.
My goal is to have a year’s supply of certain basic foods and freezer space can get in short supply when you are trying to store in bulk. Dehydrating saves freezer space for the most important foods of your food storage plan.
Dehydrated food is portable and weighs less than any other kind of stored food. During processing 70 to 95 percent of the water is removed. Want to store more in less space? Certainly, and dehydrated food will help you accomplish it!
Dehydrated food tastes great, just as natural as fresh. The dehydrating process actually intensifies the flavor of food, so you’ll use less for the same great taste. We are constantly updating this page to teach you all you need to know about how to dehydrate.
