    Dehydrator ideas?

    I bought a used dehydrator a few months ago, and it saved our lives when I was given 20 pounds of onions! I keep hoping to find "That" deal on produce so I can put it up, but I haven't found anything yet. I've had luck dehydrating everything I've tried so far. I'm out of ideas. I love dried fruit and I had luck with "sun dried" tomatoes but haven't quite figured out how or why to dry other vegetables.

    We don't eat meat so no "jerky" ideas please! But anything else is welcome!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    How long does it take to do tomatoes and how do you do them. We have more then we can use so that would work since I have a dehydrater. I just have never used it much.

    I do fruit leather from a frozen bag of strawberries i have done corn zuchinni and gawd knows what else threw the years I know there are recipe books out there I have an excalibur dehydrator it has vegtables at 135 and fruits at 130 temps but no recipe book, when I did things years past I think I just went by feel of the fruits and vegtables probably over dried vegtables for soup and such.
    Warm Regards,
    Sandra

    I have made dried apples. I just sliced them thin and put them in the Dehydrator for a few hours.

    I don't remember how long it took. I probably over did them, because it was the first thing I tried! I didn't try to slice too thin, either. Normal sandwich thickness! I want to say about 24-hours, but that might be too long. I didn't peel them either, and I think you're supposed to peel them.

    I just brushed some olive oil on them or a little bit of salt. Then I sprinkled some basil on them. They were very good. I keep my dried stuff in the freezer, just in case

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Dry fruit pieces to put in baking. Put them in cookies, fruit cake, homemade granola bars etc.
