Dehydrate Frozen Vegetables
« on: August 12, 2014, 10:26:43 AM »

 1 Set up the dehydrator according to the owner's manual instructions. For most systems, this entails putting the base on the counter top and having the stackable drying shelves nearby. Make sure you have enough space around the dehydrator for good air circulation.
2 Remove the vegetables from the freezer. Because manufacturers blanch vegetables for freezing, they can go directly to the drying stage. Open the bag and spread the vegetables by type on the stacking trays. For example, keep peas with peas and corn with corn. Layer the trays into the dehydrator unit.
3 Put the top on the dehydrator unit and set to a temperature of between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Rotate the stacking shelves hourly for even drying. It takes between six and 14 hours for peas, for example, to dry completely. Test them when you rotate the shelves. A finished vegetable has a hard, brittle texture.
4 Cool the vegetables completely before moving to storage containers. Label with the name of the vegetable or vegetable blend, and date the container. For the greatest longevity, store the bag or jar in a cool, dark area.
