Ninja Foodi Dehydrator Review

I picked the last of the herbs from our garden and I wanted to preserve them. I usually dehydrate them in my large Excalibur Dehydrator. I have already dehydrated one huge batch in it and have enough to last until next year. I couldn’t waste the remaining herbs so I thought I would dehydrate them in my Ninja Foodi to […]

Dehydrated Home Grown Herbs

I just finished dehydrating the first round of fresh herbs from our garden. Every year I get more than enough to last me for the year. There is so much satisfaction when I cook and use my own home grown dehydrated herbs. I grow the herbs I use the most like parsley, sage, thyme, rosemary, basil, bay leaf, dill, oregano, […]

Herbs for Cooking & Dehydrating

Today’s post isn’t a recipe but food for thought instead. I bought these herbs from a local organic greenhouse today. I have been planting herbs every year and I add more to my collection each year. This year I found lemon thyme and it smells just like lemon! I also bought bay leaf which I did not know is a tree. They talked to me extensively about how to grow this tree and they said I need to bring it inside and to use a grow light for the upcoming […]

Preserving Garden Herbs

Before the cold weather gets here I cut my herbs and preserve them. I have been using my fresh herbs all summer but now it’s time to preserve what is left. I preserve my herbs by dehydrating them and storing them in airtight containers. For the last two days I have dehydrated my sage, thyme and rosemary. I still have […]

Beef Jerky

My Granddaughter has been bugging me to make some Beef Jerky. She will be here tonight so I made sure it was ready for when she gets here. Beef Jerky is so expensive to buy and so easy to make. It is time-consuming but makes a lot of jerky. I don’t use a jerky gun, I just slice beef. I […]

Dehydrated Apples

So you don’t know what to do with all those apples, why not dehydrate them? Apples are high in fiber and very nutritious. I keep the skin on mine for even more fiber. They last all year-long (except in my house because we eat them). Use them for snacks or even the kids lunches at school and home. Just store […]
