Dehydrating – the easy way to preserve food while saving time, space and money.
Preserving Food Naturally
Drying or dehydrating is one of the oldest methods of food preservation. It’s easy to do and an excellent way of preserving food to retain nutrients without any additives or cooking.
Dehydrated food is still raw food. It prolongs the life of the food by removing water while retaining vitamins and minimising nutrient loss.
Drying food also stops bacteria, yeast and mould from multiplying and spoiling food.
Ready To Eat Healthy Dehydrated Food
Create your own healthy snacks for lunches including fruit leather and nuts – great for hiking, hunting or trips away.
Use in snack bars, make your own bread crumbs, add to casseroles and meals, baking and more. Make your own jerky or dry your herbs and flowers. You can even make your own pet food and treats too.
Just add water to rehydrate food again.
Storage Of Dehydrated Food
Once dried keep your food away from air or moisture. Short-term storage can be in vacuumed or air tight jars or vacuum canisters. For long-term storage, vacuum seal in a bag and place in a cool dark place or the freezer.
As with vacuum sealing, dehydrated food has a much longer keeping time than normally stored foods. The lower the moisture and temperature the longer the keeping time.
