dehydrating veggies

 Wanted to try my hand on dehydrating veggies. I was surprised how many you could dehydrate.  Since I had two heads of cabbage,I thought I would start there.

What I really liked was the dehydrator did all the work for me. It  took18 hours to dry.

When I saw this I wasn't sure it worked. It looked really brown to me.I summoned all my courage up to try it. To my surprise it had a intense flavor,but really good.

I bagged it up and placed it in a cool and dark place . I did give one to my friend Heidi. She has hers on the counter. Which she eats as a snack.

Squash was next on my list.I cut it into 1/4 inch rings.It took two large size squashes.

I layed it in single layers. Any veggies you use have to be in single layers. All the time and veggies you can dehydrate ( It will surprise you what you can use.) are at.  There is  also recipes  for the produce from the garden.

  1. Great post Michelle! The yellow squash looks awesome too, and yeah, I DO eat my dried cabbage as a snack. It's nearly calorie free and flavorful. Thanks for making it for me. HUGS!
