So I am very new to dehydrating and long term storage of food and water. Anybody have any tips to all those beginners out there like myself that are spending way too much time on the internet trying to find good information?
I am beginning to get interested in food dehydrator. There are a few threads, but I woudl like to get advices and "tricks of the trade".
-If I use it to dehydrate meat, do I have to cook the meat before? If not, can I eat it raw after dehydrated, after rehydrated?
So I just picked up a food dehydrator, it's an old school one withe the heating element and the 6 trays, it dosn't have a fan though like the newer ones iv'e seen. Got it at goodwill for 5 bucks.
What are some good recipies for foods that you guys enjoy to eat ?
Anbody have any ideas on things...

Some of you may have seen my thread on tomato roll ups.
Well I decided to do a mini-shtf trial run to test the outcome of some of my food preps
Started with one to two cups of boiling water
Added one of my prepared tomato roll ups...
I am making beef jerky and dehydrated carrots with my thrift store dehydrator. I can't wait until the beef jerky is done. I kept putting it off. I figured if I didn't use the machine, it was time to sell it.
Im going to buy a dehydrator for preserving food, and making light weight MREs.
Ive never used one before, but Id like to use it for fruit, veggies, and making jerky. Has anyone used these? Any recommendations?
