One of the most ancient techniques for food preservation is drying. You don’t need an expensive food dehydrator to dry food! A conventional gas or electric oven can be used for all recipes.
Essential for food security, drying solves storage problems in the fridge and takes up less space in the pantry than canning. Not to mention that unlike canning, we can preserve these foods without added sugar or vinegar.
