You know how some ladies swear their man just does not get them? I love that my man gets me… some ladies want jewlery or new outfits or fancy dinners out for their b-days.. Mine got me a brand-new Excalibur Dehydrator! with their cookbook Perserve it Naturally, the Complete Guide to Food Dehydration, Third Edition.
With our very humid summers its proven to be quite hard to be able to count of drying or perserving the harvest naturally, so moving over to the electic Dehydration is a good choice in many cases, while still using the drying screens in the summer when weather allows. With the cost of power where it is, using the most effective means of drying becomes important, we had gotten to the point of running two of the smaller round ones, plus the oven at times and still not having enough space and of equal importance, we were having trouble getting the temps right on some of the more fragile things I was drying, which meant reduced qaulity in the end product, I have a big old learning curve ahead of me with my new machine and I will certianly share along the way on how it goes..
If you own a Excalibur and have any advice for me, I would love to hear it?
