INSTANT SURVIVAL TIP: Dehydrate Frozen Foods
Did you know that you can dehydrate frozen vegetables? I just read about this and decided to give it a try. My grocery store often has bags of frozen veggies on sale for $1 a bag. It’s a good deal, but even more so when you purchase a dozen bags and end up with jars of dehydrated veggies that will last long-term.
There’s no need to thaw your veggies first. Just lay them out on your dehydrating trays. The first time you dehydrate a specific veggie, check on its’ process every two to three hours to determine what the total dehydrating time will be for future batches. When the veggie pieces are completely dry, without a trace of moisture, pour them into jars with an oxygen absorber or store them in vacuum sealed plastic bags. Just think. A couple handfuls of veggies, some chicken broth, and rice will make an excellent soup this coming winter or in the winter of 2020!
