Generally, to dry fruits and
vegetables, you slice them thin, and depending on if it browns or
not when exposed to air, dip the slices in lemon juice. You then
place the slices onto the racks of the dehydrator and turn it on. My
kids have a good time helping me prepare the food for drying and are
getting a valuable lesson in food preservation not to mention
quality time with mom. After a matter of time (it depends on which fruit or vegetable you're drying), you will
have the finished product ready to be stored in glass jars, resealables, canisters or whatever you'd like to store them in. It
usually takes quite a few hours for the produce to become dry. When
you purchase a food dehydrator, it comes with an instruction book
listing approximate times, directions and a few recipes that include
the finished product.
One of the best things about fruit is it can be dried and therefore
makes a variety of fruit more readily available all year round. Though
the fruit is dried, there is still much goodness to be found within
it. Within the range of dried fruit there is the familiar raisin
through to the more extravagant dried mango spears. If you are craving
a sweet snack, they are a great alternative to a bag full of lollies.
Dried fruit makes a popular instant snack for many athletes,
bushwalkers or those who participate in long distance sports. It
provides a great energy source, contains significant amounts of iron,
potassium and selenium and also has small amounts of certain other
minerals and of course fibre and Vitamin A (in the yellow and orange
dried fruits). Again, much better than a handful of lollies.
Dried fruits can offer an excellent contribution those suffering with
constipation as their fibre content makes them a gentle laxative and
they are also good for relieving anaemia due to their iron content.
