A NEW TOY IN MY KITCHEN

Hello
I have a new toy in my kitchen.....a Dehydrator
Here is it
Now can I so many of my fruits and veggies dry
The first what I have dried was carrots.

Thats my way to dry carrots

First ,you'll need wash and peel the carrots.
Then remove the tops and lips.
I have started adding the carrot scraps to a freezer bag
of chicken or another veggies for making stock later.----
after the motto" nothing wasted"

Slice the carros in "1/4 "in
Then blanch the carrots 2 minutes
The should still fairly hard but not tender
Then choose the carrots in ice water to quickly cool


Just fill the racks with the blanched carrots,
making sure not overlap any.
If you have not a dehydrator you can also dry in the oven by 60 degress
After five hour's looks the carrot so------- perfect.


I storred them in a jar and stuck them in
my pantry.I have read a dark place is perfect.

This was my first dried carrots.

Have a nice week,
regina

Thanks for your help ....I have made a ring of peppers
