Do you want to learn ways to drying and storing food, preserving fruit, vegetables, meat & more? Plus healthy, delicious and easy recipes for jerky, snacks and fruit leather? If yes, then keep reading...

But, you may be saying, what about canning? What about freezing? What's wrong with these methods of preservation? Here are some reasons why many people choose drying over the other methods of food preservation.

Less time and skill required. If you've ever tried canning and given up because things didn't turn out as planned, take comfort: Dehydrating foods is a lot easier and less time consuming. Even if you've never done it before, dehydrating is a skill you can quickly learn and, indeed, become an expert at. And let's be honest-who really wants to spend time canning foods in the middle of summer when your kitchen already feels as if it's 110°F? Using a dehydrating machine produces very little heat so you won't lose your cool even if it's 90°F outside and you're running the machine all day.

Less storage space needed. The era of living in oversized houses is gone, and these days many of us have moved into smaller homes. Maybe your grown children have moved back with you or your family's had a recent young addition. Either way we need to make the most of the space we have. The last thing we want to do is fill shelves with canned foods or even a chest freezer taking up valuable feet in the basement or garage. Dehydrating shrinks foods down to one-tenth of their original size, so a pound of carrots can easily fit into a small jar. If you have a small kitchen or limited storage space, dehydration is for you.

Capture flavor when it's at its freshest. One of the best things about summer is the abundance and variety of produce. However, a major drawback is when it's hot and humid the food spoils quickly and you can only eat so much of it. Dehydrating allows you to have the best of both worlds.
