Drying & Dehydrating
Part of "Food Preservation"
As families begin to eat more vegetables and fruit, dehydrators have become a popular way of preserving them for nutritious, preservative-free, dye-free, tastier and less expensive alternatives to store-bought snacks.
Home-dehydrated fruits and vegetables can last for months, and if properly stored, often up to a whole year. Lightweight, they are easily transportable to work, school, and for hiking and outdoor activities.
Using a food dehydrator retains the original vitamins, minerals, and natural enzymes of foods more effectively than other forms of food preservation or cooking.
This Course segment starts with a basic tutorial on using a dehydrator. It is followed by how-to guides and videos demonstrating other ways of drying foods such as oven drying. The Course segment ends with a tutorial on how to make ‘ulu flour with a conventional food processor and a poster on larger scale ‘ulu flour processing.
