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.

We’ll be:

  • making oven-dried root vegetable chips ( And a tasty dipping sauce for healthy appetizer idea!)

  • making apple and pear chips

  • making naturally sweet ‘fruit roll-ups’ with apples, pears, stone-fruits and berries

  • Drying herbs and chilies
  • Receiving recipes and ideas for using dried foods in everyday cooking.
