Garden vegetables were picked and processed for dehydrating into a powder for storage at room temperature. Vegetables available are carrots, beets, onion, daikon, kale, tomato, pepper and green beans. The process is to cook and make a slurry, then strain through a food mill with a 2 mm mesh screen. The residue from the food mill is put through a Champion juicer to obtain the maximum nutrients. The juice is then pressure cooked in liter jars.Each liter jar is about three servings when reduced to a dried powder. The drying process will be added when available in the next few days.

29 August 2018 Dehydrating liquids

Dehydrating liquids is a major issue since the dried product sticks to the drying tray. I have experimented with the various commercial solutions to the problems and all are useless. My solution is: Lightly grease a 10 by 14 Teflon cookie sheet with olive oil. Pout a relatively thin layer of the product on the tray and make an even thickness. This is about 300 ml or slightly more than a cup. One batch is about 3 liters of finished product. I have nine tray spaces in my Excalibur dehydrator.The finished product is made into a powder and stored in enclosed containers or vacuum packed.
