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 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 your videos — thanks so much for doing them. You inspired me to purchase a better dehydrator and try dehydrating again. I am sooo excited and anxious for the new dehydrator to come. By the way, video #4 of the cooking with dehydrated foods seems to be missing.

  • Paulette Shunk-Clever

    Wow~I used to make fruit roll ups for my boys when they were younger and you just made it so much easier!!! It was so much work! They may take longer to dry this way, but so much less work. I can’t wait to get a food dehydrator!

    I noticed the raspberries look exactly like raspberries~Do they not shrink?

  • thesmalltowngirl81

    I was wondering have you ever used cantaloupe for fruit roll-ups? If so do you mix it with any other fruit or just use it by its self?
    Thanks! Oh and I LOVE your videos;-) Thanks for all the great info!

  • Kara Blume

    love your videos, but when you run your vacuum sealer and grinder it blows out my speakers.

  • Deborah Davis

    I love, love, love your videos. I own your book but this just brings it to life for me – you make it look easy and I am sure I will get there it is a matter of changing the way I look at things. I don’t know how long you have done this for but this is a brilliant way to store foods and I wish I had started long ago but it’s never to late to learn!! Thank you for these videos!

  • Victoria Blanc

    no no no on the zip lock bags in the dehydrator.. any plastic when heated or frozen gives off a toxin called dioxin that is a carcinogen. use parchment paper or soy wax paper. otherwise great series. have watched the whole thing. very informative. but don’t put plastic in the dehydrator with your food.

    • Jus- Sayin

      Victoria Blank Parchment paper cut to size is perfect and can be used over and over or order the covers from Amazon.
