101 Dehydrating Recipes & Tips from Mom with a PREP.com

And as an FYI – here is what I do all of my dehydrating with:

101 Dehydrating Recipes {Mom with a Prep} -- the Dehydrator I use to dehyrate with.

It works really wonderfully – I reviewed it here for you to read. Someday, I would like an Excalibur, but for now, my Nesco works awesomely!

An Update:

I have recently invested in an Excalibur Dehydrator. I still love the Nesco, and always will because I think it’s a fantastic machine in the under $100 crowd. Probably the best. But I do love the Excalibur and will be reviewing it soon.

    This is a wonderful list, thank you for putting it together. I arrived via Prairie Homestead Barn Hop! I’m looking forward to referencing several of your recipes, but I was hoping for a hot pepper recipe (hubbs brought home a grocery sack full of 6 different peppers, and I don’t know what to do!). Any suggestions?!

  5. says

    Yes! Just got a food dehydrator (haven’t even taken it out of the box yet). Going to a farmers’ market today, and will be searching through here to see how to preserve some of what we pick up. :)

  1. […] Mom With a Prep Food dehydration is exactly what it sounds like… removing the moisture from food. The natural moisture in food is the breeding ground for bacteria, yeast, and mold, over time. By removing it, with the proper process, the food can be safely stored much longer, while retaining its vital nutrients. The proper temperature is paramount: too high and the food will cook, the outside hardening, trapping moisture inside; too low and it will dry but not be dehydrated. Kitchen Chatters gives a good explanation of this. […]
