How to Dehydrate and Store Food PART 4

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.

  • Kelly Raabe

    Hi I’ve just started doing dehydrating/sealing. Thanks for the tips with mylar etc. Just wondering if you’ve had problems with reinflating that were not due to holes in the seal or bag. Especially with fruit?

  • Donna Johnson

    I have a new 9-tray Excalibur and I can’t wait to get started. I need a vacuum sealer — what kind do you use or recommend. Thanks.

  • kristine noyb

    how long will the fruit/veggies last in a jar with no oxygen pad or in a vacuum saver with no oxygen pad ?

  • jenhays1971

  • janet lee

    I’m so glad I found your videos. This is really helpful information — this is all so new to me! I’m going to watch Parts 1-4 again and take some notes. My next purchase is going to be a Food Saver. I can certainly see the value of having one from your video and from another Food Saver video tutorial by Katzcradul. Thanks for sharing!

  • mylittlespectacle

    Fantastic info, thank you. I’m curious. When you package in sealed and Mylar bags…do you not open until SHTF? Or do you open and reseal again hence the extra space in bags? Love your videos and have subscribed. Thanks

  • BirdOfParadise777

    What are the current “best” places to buy from? Thanks:)

  • Rebecca Sieghartner

    Oh, my word. I know where I’m going when the world runs out of food. 16 oranges in 1 bag?

  • Salobrena Smith

    I love your videos, but what do you do with all the orange slices

  • MsStanleycat

    If the food is vacuum packed and in Mylar you can use any bucket as it will not come in contact with the food. Bucket serves to keep rodents or bugs from chewing through bags.

    • Barbara Mowrey

      MsStanleycat the lock and lock storage containers on QVC.COM work great., bpa free, for freezing as well. I got 3 sets of 15?…all different sizes for $12? I store oats, speghitti, noodles, beans, rice, flour…etc…they are see through and sealed.
