With Summer here and all the fresh fruit and veggies, my dehydrator is getting a workout! If you have never used one, you don’t know what you are missing! I especially love dehydrating my jalapeno peppers. Chop them up and put them in the dehydrator, then bag them up and pop in the freezer. They are so handy for throwing a handful into whatever you are cooking. Then, there is all the fruit – strawberries, bananas, etc. Perfect for snacks and adding to cereal!
Besides fruit and veggies, you can also dehydrate meat for jerky. You can even dehydate home grown spices for use later on. There is simply a multitude of uses and once you have one, you will never be without one again! I love mine and now Katrina over at Top Notch Material has been trying one of the Nesco Dehydrators. Go by and read what she had to say about it.
Here’s a little about the Nesco Dehydrator
Our Nesco®/American Harvest® FD-77DT Digital Dehydrator features 600 watts of drying power that generates maximum speed and quality for dehydrating fruits, vegetables, herbs, beef jerky, and venison jerky. Helps dry food in hours, not days like ordinary food dehydrators.
Their Patented Converga-Flow drying system forces air down the exterior pressurized chamber not through the trays providing even heat. The hot air is forced horizontally across each individual tray, converging on the core for fast, even and nutritious drying. There is no flavor mixing and no need to rotate trays.
Nesco’s adjustable thermostat allows you to dry different foods at proper temperatures 95-160 degrees, providing the flexibility to produce the best drying results.
Their top mounted fan prevents liquids from dripping into the heating chamber!
This Dehydrator comes with four trays; and can expand to 12 trays with the purchase of additional trays. Drying automatically adjusts to the number of trays.
