How to dehydrate and store food PART 1

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.

    First thank you for your detail! I’ve learned so much. I was wondering though do you have any idea how to get banannas not to stick to the stainless steel mesh? I made a solar dehydrator and it works great especially in the hot dry CO sun BUT some food sticks like glue. Help pls
