    Dehydrator ideas...

    Primal Fuel
    So this seems to be the perfect time of year to bust out the dehydrator and start dehydrating. The last few days we have been doing jerky with all kinds of seasonings.
    Please give me some ideas of other things to dehydrate. I have done bananas and apples in the past with alot of luck..
    All ideas welcome!

    The yellow flowers are edible and delicious, sort of buttery. Never tried the dried heads, seems dry and hard. The leaves are good fresh in salad, cooked in meals, or dried. I make tea from the leaves. And I steep the chopped roots in just-boiled water to eat and drink for a complexion boost/zit extermination campaign. Very few foods are as nutritious as dandelion. You can dry the roots as well and grind them for coffee substitute, but why bother when we've got real coffee!

    I've done zucchini chips. The baby thought they were the bees knees. They're great to put in a little baggy when we're out and about.

    I tried spinach leaves. Works great. Then I powder it down and toss it in meatloaf, soups and spinach dip.
    Celery, carrots, green and red peppers. I also dehydrate some of those and powder these down, too. I can make my own seasonings this way. I want to try onions and garlic, but this is an outside job.

    "onion rings" are really good: sweet onion cut into rings, dip in balsamic vinegar, roll in flaxseed meal and dehydrate
