Just got a Dehydrator :)
I've wanted one for years and this year for my birthday my boyfriend bought me one. I have yet to use it and was wondering what are some of the best things to use in a dehydrator? I'm also very interested in making 'fruit leather' for a quick snack to have around.
If you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know~~
Mmmmmmmmmm kale chips! :)
Raisins, bananas chips (sliced very thin and soaked in a bit of honey), apple chips (coated w/ cinnamon, soaked in a little lemon juice)
I second kale chips! YUMMY :)
i love kale chips too
i just made a double batch yesterday/today
another great thing for the dehydrator is any type of grainless bread or cracker or tortilla
there are lots of great recipes here
try the onion bread
i've done that before and it's great
enjoy your excalibur dehydrator
it's a fantastic appliance
Another vote for kale chips here, they are delicious! Or you can make raw crackers or wraps.
sundried tomatoes, we have so many tomatoes in oz at the moment i am going crazy with them
the excalibur comes with some recipes if i'm not mistaken (i rarely use the guide!)
there are lots of recipes on line
or in raw food books
for many tasty dehydrated things from all types of jerky or fruit leathers to more elaborate preparations
raw burgers, buns, breads, candies, chips and chocolate chips (i made these once...omg what a CHORE! but fun in the end!)
i love the 9 tray excalibur
if you're handy you can probably MAKE one
but if not...worth the investment.
Some of my favorites...
Great savory crackers:
