    great video

    Piece of advice: put your dehydrator in the garage if you do broccoli. You don’t need the accusations for the next couple days.

    Thanx Steve. Another good video.

    I have a “starter” dehydrator that has no thermostat. It just plugs in & the temp is approx 165 degrees. What do I do when videos say to dehydrate at 125 or some other temp when I can’t regulate mine? Thanks for any advice….😊

  • Kiruthika Deenadayalan

    Really loved this video…very informative…want to ask about electricity…like how much power is consumed…?how can we save on it..?

    Bok Choy is extremely easy to grow at home. Seeds are readily available at big box stores. It can be grown in a regular planting bed, raised bed or in containers such as plastic coffee cans or planter boxes. It grows very quickly too. This is my first time growing it and its been fun to watch it grow. Im on my second planting of the season. Nice video. Thanks.

  • Sarah Nice

    What if you don’t steam the broccoli or cauliflower. What difference does it make other then cook time

    I am so glad that you are back! Now I get to binge watch what I have missed.

    Thanks for sharing this. I can never finish a whole head of bok choy. Now, I can save it.. Thanks for sharing.

    My cauliflower just stays leathery. It won’t dry/crumble like yours. It’s been going for 16 hours and I cut them small. Oh dear I hope their ok.
