I just received an inexpensive food dehydrator and I'm having a lot of fun using it so far I have made raisins, dried Garlic Scapes and made Salmon Jerky . Right now I'm dehydrating blueberries. You can pay a lot of money for these things but I went with the cheapest I could find. $35.00 and it seems to be working very well. As summer goes on I plan to dry a lot of things from the garden such as peas, beans and herbs.
