Re: Why do my own dehydrating???
2011-12-01 05:14:07 GMT
I do it because my cooking (I cook for a living) tastes so much better than Mountain House or any of those other over-priced, heartburn-inducing pre-packaged foods that, imo, taste little better than seasoned cardboard. I've also found that many of the foods I enjoy from my favorite little mom-and-pop restaurants can be dehydrated. It's a great thing to be sitting on top of a mountain a thousand miles away from home, eating my favorite take-out.
Expense, and I have (A LOT) more time than money.
I make a lot, and store as "emergency' food supply.
I have many mason jars (Foodsaver vacuum packed) full of dehydrated veggies,
dinner meals, etc.
Easy access to vegetables for making soups and stews on the wood stove
during the winter months.
I also believe our society has lost a connection due to having companies
make things for us. So, I try to keep a connection.
Other reasons are I like Organic, and doing it myself keep quality under
control (most of the time).
