Dehydrator Recipes eCourse

This week we’re going to stray from the norm (me featuring a recipe from the link-up below) and instead I’m going to tell you a bit about the new GNOWFGLINS Dehydrating eCourse which begins January 8th – and give you a chance to win access!
I am beside myself with excitement that Wardeh has decided to offer this course for us! This is a wonderful time of year to pull out those dehydrators and put some moisture back in the air.
What I love about dehydrating foods is that it’s really fool-proof. With canning, you have to be sure the method is done with precision or you could end up with failed batches (food poisoning or just throwing them away).
Dehydrated foods take up less space than canning jars, and since you are not boiling all the vitamins and enzymes out of your foods, they are more nutrient-dense, too.

The aroma of dehydrating foods is warm and inviting (okay, unless you’re doing up a batch of onions), and the extra warmth coming from the machine is helpful on these cooler, winter days.
I can’t wait to learn how to make my own instant rice, powdered yogurt, and other foods beyond typical dried fruit and jerky.

What’s in the eCourse?

21+ video lessons with printable tutorials and recipes. As I do with all of Wardhe’s eCourses, I print them out and slide them in page protectors and put in a binder. This way, I can bring it in my kitchen and keep the papers clean and dry.
You also get access to the forum for any support you may need in your dehydrating journey.

PLUS access to all classes!

I love that the way it works over at GNOWFGLINS is when you purchase a subscription you get access to ALL classes. I have learned to much from taking Wardeh’s classes – everything from Fundamentals to Cheesemaking to getting your kids involved.
You can purchase a subscription for as little as $8 a month. A steal of a deal!

Materials Needed

A dehydrator!
Currently, I am using a Nesco dehydrator, but this month I will be purchasing this LEM 10-Tray Dehydrator, which is similar in style to the Excalibur, but is around $50 less. I’ll be ordering it in three weeks and will update you with how I like it once I get it and use it!
Although my Nesco works fine, I like the option of pulling out all the trays and using the warmth to make large batches of yogurt and helping my dough to rise. And with all the trays I’ll have more than double the room.

It’s also nice to have a mandoline slicer available for evenly sliced chips - be it beets, sweet potatoes, summer squash, or zucchini.
