dehydrating

  1. Food and water
    I have searched for threads and the internet for rehydration of foods and found only instructions and not tastes. I have a food dehydrator (Excalibur and one from Bass Pro Shops) and have had many successes and a few fails. I would like a Freeze Dryer but have heard few private experiences...

    Periodically I check on this site as I have found the variety items they carry for all round food preservation (dehydrating, SMOKING, sausage making .....) to be very broad ... Well, today I discovered they were having a Very nice site-wide sale and thought I'd share the info...

    Holy cow! I have dehydrated cucumbers with a pinch of garlic salt and some fresh parsley from my greenhouse. I vacuum sealed then, and left some out to eat. I will never eat regular chips again! I may try them with vinegar next! I am in the process of dehydrating tomatoes in the same way right...
  5. General Discussion
    hey guys i had an idea. on my various car/vehicle forums people will post build threads to get advice and track their personal advancement and crap like that. so i figure why not make a "personal prep" thread. this will cover everything i have done and plan to do in the immediate future. feel...

    Canning / Sealing / Saving and other tips tricks and hints about preserving food. I've been searching the forum all night for different information about mylar bags. I gave up on my search for canned foods. Other topics that could be in that sub heading that would be hugely helpful to collect...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just thought I would share this how to video on the method I use to store water in case of emergency. This originally came from another forum and it's simply brilliant. Why hadn't I thought of this before?

  9. Food and water
    I came across some deer sausage and a lot of it. I was wondering if there was a way to dehydrate it without the use of a dehydrater? Can I use my stove? Anyone ever done this? With any sausage? With the deer meat sausage? The sausage I have is deer and pork mix. Not sure the amount which...
  10. Food and water
    I don't have a canner, but I'm thinking it might be handy to have one...however, dehydrating also looks like a good option and I already have a non-electric dehydrator. Before I invest in a canner, I'd like some input on one method vs. the other...if you've done both, what's your preference...

    All I am new to the forum (and Love it) from Warren County NJ, no Newark is the other side of the state where I am doomed to work for the rest of my life. Any way I am new to this life style (in a way I have always been cheap or frugal) but am now embracing many of the basic objectives of this...
  12. Food and water
    I'm pretty new to the forum so if I'm asking an old question forgive me. I see a lot of people buying MREs, Gardening, and stockpiling groceries, but I don't see much discussion about home storage. So, how are you storing the food you grow? Each way I know of has it's own pluses and minuses...
