Dehydrators are the best things ever!!! I make my yogurt in mine, plus jerky, dry almost any veggie & fruit!!! Also, fruit leathers. Dry tomatos then grind up for instant tomato sauce!! Mushooms, onions, peppers can also be dried. I live in the country & if I run out of something in the cupboard, I just go to my dried stash & usually find what I need!! I would really hate to be without my dehydrator!
