How to dehydrate and store food PART 5

Food dehydration is an effective and fun way to reduce waste, save money, go green, and practice preparedness! Dehydrated food lasts for years when stored properly, is lightweight, and doesn't require electricity to preserve. In this video, you will learn how to dehydrate a number of fruits and vegetables, and will learn a ton of other great tricks for your food dehydration and long-term food storage!

We love to help you dehydrate, store, and build your pantry! Here are some things we think will help you!

Excalibur Dehydrator:
Vacuum Sealer:
Vacuum Bags:

For high-volume dehydration and storage, we recommend the 9-tray Excalibur dehydrator and a heavy-duty vacuum sealer with dual motors. For low- or moderate-volume dehydration, we recommend 6- or 9-tray Excalibur, and any vacuum sealer, with high-quality vacuum bags.

    I love this idea of making small packages with the ingrediants for your favourite soup ready to go. I will be doing this, thanks

  • adoracle1

    This is just amazing. I have priced already dehydrated foods, and to my utter shock, found them extremely expensive especially when compared to what you are doing here. its obvious that once the initial investments are done, for the machines etc, that the costs drop through the floor, only requiring packaging and food [and power of course]
    thank you so much for caring enough about the rest of us to go to such lengths to give us a chance.

    Thank you for opening me up to the idea of dehydrating. I never realized how easy it is. Thanks for the economic insight. I am a CPA and I know this economic collapse is coming. Study the history of the great depression of the 1930s.

  • Our Little Homestead!

    Do you boil your rice and then dehydrate BEFORE putting in the jars? I wanted to make some chicken flavored rice to dehydrate. Tx for answering!

  • MrStr81

    What a great series. Thank you for sharing.

  • Francy M

    Wow…you really gave us great insight into what you’ve learned & heard on Wall street!
    Like how the price of food has gone up the roof…alright! Dehydrating IS the way to go!
    I didn’t know I was going to learn something from Wall st. from someone who really wants to help others. Thank YOU!

  • Gregory Faith

    I’m so glad I found your channel. We are like minded and I recently purchased the Excalibur 9 tray dehydrator and live very close to a couple farmers markets. I bought the best one on the market and with your encouragement, I will no doubt be using it all of the time. Thank you so much and always be prepared.

  • Tsukani Takuda

    can you be my mom. you are awesome!!!!! also i was wondering… you have all those veggies…. have you ever tried dehydrating and storing meat?

    • Jay Extarys

      For those reading this, meat contain fat and fat doesnt dehydrate well and can spoil the meat. Turkey is great. If you do ground beef or chicken, make it in very small pieces and rinse it with boiling water. To avoid contamination do not use hot tap water.

  • Missy Clark

    Wow…these are wonderful videos. Has everything we need to know. Wish you lived down the road. I can’t wait to get started on this way of cooking. I am gluten intolerant and intolerant to many preservatives in “box” and prepackaged foods. We hike, backpack and camp and it’s so very hard for me to eat on these adventures. Thank you so much for all the time you put into these videos.

  • InLaws Attic

    Thank you so much!!! I’m just starting out with all this and it seems overwhelming- you are making it make sense ! THANKS!

  • David Gonzalez

    have you ever tried dehydrating the chicken as well? Then the meal could be a “just add water” soup.

  • Lloyd Hooper
