Dehydrated Vegetables and Meals using a Food Dehydrator

Dehydrated Vegetables and meals are an excellent method of food preservation

Whether you’re a homesteader, prepper or outdoor enthusiast, you’ll appreciate dehydrated food. Dehydrating as a method of preservation uses less resources than canning or freezing. If you’re into hiking or backpacking, dehydrated meals, veggies or meat are lightweight to carry. We love making dehydrated kale chips as a healthy snack.

Dehydrated foods can also be re-hydrated into meals

Prepper's Dehydrator Handbook

I was recently given a copy of Prepper’s Dehydrator Handbook: Long-term Food Storage Techniques for Nutritious, Delicious, Lifesaving Meals to review. There are many things I love about this book!

Dehydrated vegetables have different textures once preserved and re-hydrated

One of my favorite things about this book was the details in not only how to dehydrate vegetables or meat, but also what the texture will be once re-hydrated.

For example, peppers

This is a great book for those interested in using and learning how to use a food dehydrator to dehydrate!

Learn how to dehydrate vegetables, fruits, meat, and even make healthy ‘flour’ like coconut flour. The list of fruits and vegetables you can dehydrate is extensive and she offers short-term and long-term food storage information. She’ll go over the types of dehydrators (See my food dehydrator review) and food dehydration basics.

Shelle Wells also offers recipes for how to use your dehydrated food to create meals

Whether you’re a prepper, homesteader or love using your food dehydator, this books is super handy to have around. I highly recommend it. 🙂
