And put a freeze dryer in layaway. This one:

https://harvestright.com/product/medium-freeze-dryer/

I love my Excalibur but some things just aren't the same once they are dehydrated. I'm really interested in how chicken, quail, duck and rabbit meat do because my freezer isn't gonna be big enough to hold all the meat I'm gonna have, and canned meat has it's limitations unless you are really into casseroles.

So ... Happy Birthday to me! I'll get it outta jail just about the time the fall harvest fires up. I can hardly wait!

I think you're going to love it.

We have not used ours too creatively with fancy recipes and stuff, but we've done loads of ground beef and chicken. I love the way freeze dried meat reconstitutes perfectly.

So long, crappy TVP "meat"!

When do you get it and how much power does it use?

I did the layaway plan because I just couldn't bring myself to take that much money out of the bank all at once and there is no finance charge. Seems like every time I make a big ticket purchase that is discretionary something breaks and I'm kicking myself for spending that money. Lol

The plan is to have it by the mid- to end of September.

Not sure about the cost of electricity. I joined a few FB groups dedicated to freeze drying and just started reading but the general consensus seems to be that the increase is somewhere between $8-10.00 a month.

Given the fact that I love avocados -- and don't care for frozen and thawed avocado -- this seems like a reasonable purchase. Kinda like the old man's reloading stuff is "reasonable" to him.

The thing I'm most concerned about is the noise. Our house isn't that big and I'm gonna be devastated if I wind up having to move it from the garage (which is convenient) out to the shed (which is not so convenient). We shall see ...

I'm back to trying to talk the old man into moving to an acreage closer to where I grew up (Duncan). I don't hold much hope I'll be able to get him to budge but I can nag ... maybe I can catch him in a weak moment.

I hear ya! I told Grumpy last night I was gonna get with D.'s Household 6 about property prices down there so I could get a feel for what I need to get accomplished in the next year or so. Gotta work on the old man HARD first. He's not real keen on "country living".
