Dehydrate Bargain Priced Fruit

When you find fresh fruits on sale, buy a big amount and dehydrate it. Your pantry can hold only so many jars. A dehydrated item can be stored in an air tight bag or in the freezer and uses a lot less space.

Dehydrating is a great way to taste summer in the middle of winter. I just finished dehydrating cherries for snacking & baking and always dehydrate apples later in the season because I have so many of them. Right now I'm drying zucchini sliced into 1/8" slices for baking, soups, stews, etc. I always use zip-lock freezer bags for storing dried fruits and vegetables so they don't absorb moisture. Dehydrating is a very economical way to preserve food for a multiplicity of uses, as well as being a real space saver.
