How to Dehydrate: Garlic, Onions, Celery, Scallions, and Leeks

In this video, you will learn how to dehydrate garlic, onions, celery, scallions, and leeks! 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. 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.

    are the glove for sanitary reasons when dehydrating for long term storage, or do you use gloves for all of your food prep?

  • Jack Spirko

    Tammy, you rock! Thanks for being a guest on my show and thanks for posting a new YouTube vid. I was worried now that you have a site you might not be posting to the tube anymore.

    We need good content like yours on Youtube! Oh and tell your boy thanks for all the work he does to keep your videos coming.

  • Beach ♥ Nature Lover

    Cool! Thank you for sharing this info! I’ve never seen the HUGE garlic in stores! I really really need to get my dehydrator out and get to using it again!

  • Mahalalel3

    Tremendous instruction. I have learned so much from your videos.

  • Sheila6325

    I finally tried my new Excalibur and Oh My Goodness!!! What a difference! I knew it would be better than my old round one, but I HAD NO IDEA it would be so much easier to use, and that the food would come out so much nicer. The large square trays are wonderful, and nothing could fall through any spaces like the old one. The new timer is fantastic. The quality is Outstanding, Thank you for your videos, I couldn’t have, done this without you! Bless you!

  • Shokara2

    Thank you so much for this fantastic information.  You are amazing and such a good teacher.  So easy to understand exactly what to do. I watched all your videos and have learned what I was searching for and much more. You are such a blessing and your generosity is very appreciated!

  • Debbie Holland

    Thank you so much for sharing so much info. I love for all your hard work to share this with us all. I was always told to de-string celery. I notice you did not. Does it make a difference? God Bless and thank you.

  • Sonja DT

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful and well explained video @Dehydrate2store. I have one question. What is the portion amounts for the garlic, celery and onion?

    I’m interested in making my own ‘French Onion Soup Mix’.

  • Nanmarie GY

    Thank you so much for you time and info. I am so excited as I just bought your book and am using it for dehydrating and recipes.

  • Angie Waterman

    All great info for how to, but never mentions how long to dehydrate each food for. Some things take an hour, others 5 hrs, some longer. Please indulge us with the length of time for each food to dehydrate.

  • Debby Owens

    I am going through your series slowly. I am THRILLED with this. I personally bought a dehydrator about 10 years ago. I used it a couple of times. With mixed results. Mostly I was not happy. And it has sat in my basement since. Your series has made me realize the MULTITUDE of mistakes I made… I NEVER got anything that came out particularly crisp… things always were bendy and softish. NOTHING would snap. And therefore items would stick together and I never felt that I could store them without them spoiling. I actually have all the things you use… from food mills, meat slicers and grinders, mason jars (I do canning), I have a VitaMix etc…. My Question to you is… is there a book or a printable thing that would tell me temperatures and times for specific foods? Do you have one or a recipe book so I can have an idea of how much dehydrated corn = how much fresh? ETC?? lol I am so excited I want to start… but taking notes from your videos currently is all I can think of doing… and its a bit daunting there is SO much information! THANK YOU THANK YOU for these videos!!! 🙂

    When you dehydrate things like green onions, celery etc. Cut the root off and put it in water, it will keep growing and give you more to use/dehydrate. Garlic which is getting a bit old, separate into cloves and put the cloves in a pot, with the top barely peeking up from the soil. The “grass” that grows from it, has a lovely, mild garlic flavor, yummy in soups, salads etc. Sure it would be great to dehydrate too! 🙂 Thanks forthe great video! 🙂

  • Terry McCrarey
