If you’ve never thought about using one of these products before, you may not know many of the great benefits that come with using these products. These units allow you to do a great many things with food that you may have never thought possible in your own home. One of the most common uses is dried fruit. Apples, strawberries, or whatever is in seasons can all be sliced and tossed in your dehydrator. After a few hours these fruits will be dried out, suitable for long-term storage. These are a great healthy snack as an alternative to potato chips. Additionally, even compared to dried fruit you might find in the store, you’ll be sure that there are no added sugars and preservatives.
In addition to fruit, you can also dry meat. This means you can finally make your own beef jerky that is so delicious, but also so expensive as well. These products can make the jerky in just a few hours. You can coat it with any number of spices and rubs to get the flavor you want.
