Good Things Come in 3’s (1/3)


DIY food dehydration

Good Things Come in 3’s

They do! And I’m gonna make you guess the next two in my trio of trio posts.

I make great use of the food dehydrator – it’s so easy to cut up food and leave it for a couple days. Not to mention, it’s a healthy alternative to pre-packaged snacks. It does run up the electric bill a little bit tho…  Hey, anyone want to join me for Unprocessed October? The dehydrator will definitely come in handy! No added salt or sugar to these three snack recipes.

Thing 1

This one was a new experiment for me. My parents had a bunch of tomatoes left, even after they made salsa. So I thought I’d try to make “sundried” tomatoes (minus the sun).

Sprinkled some Italian seasonings atop, and that’s it.

They are pretty yummy! Had them on spaghetti.

Thing 2

This is what I did with my bag of apples from the orchard! I corer about ten apples through the apple corer, slices them and dried them. Just tossed on a little cinnamon.

Thing 3

This is a tried and true favorite of mine. I get two pineapples every week for work snacks.

So there were my adventures in dehydration. I just wouldn’t combine things 1, 2 and 3 all in the same drying session next time. My pineapple taste a little zesty. Oops

    • You and me both! I’m really looking forward to the challenge – Can’t wait to get creative in the kitchen. The Bob’s Red Mill coupons will come in handy too! Thanks again 🙂
