2.2.2 What foods dehydrate well?

from Clint Scott (pre-1996)

Carrots dry very well. Most things do very well except green beans,
zucchini and yellow squash. Oddly enough fresh asparagus tips do very
well. The stalks are sort of 'barkey' but the tips re-hydrate nicely.


from Anne Louise Gockel (pre-1996)

I found that some foods are not worth drying (blueberries; yuck,
although they might be useful for pancakes when camping) and others
are just wonderful.

from Stephen Northcutt (pre-1996)

Besides apples and peaches, I have found that green or mature onions,
spinach, and squash (zucchini) dry well and make great additions to
winter soups and stews.

from Graham Dodd (Feb 8, 1996)

I use dehydrators for making fruit snacks and sweets also for
preserving food. Without trying to 'Advertise' I also sell them and
have some excellent recipe books with hundreds of recipes and tips in
them. If any one would like to know more about dehydrators from a user
view I would be happy to answer questions.

In other words, try it. It will either work for you, or it will not.
If it does not work perfectly for you, it will be great in some dishes

(stew!).
