Drying Vegetables in the Dehydrator

It’s so much fun drying vegetables in your dehydrator … there is no limit to what you can do. I’d like to show you how I’ve filled all 5 trays of my dehydrator so they can all dry together at the one time.

This is the top tray which I filled with small apple pieces


I filled a second tray with apple pieces.  I didn’t use my “you beaut” apple corer and slicer as the apples were so tiny I felt I would lose half of them… just took the time to core and cut them by hand.


A third tray of apples.  They are so yummy once dried that they don’t last all that long.


Next I made my Blood Tonic which consists of beets and red wine, so filled up the 4th tray with the beet pulp.

eLast but not least, the 5th tray is filled with carrot pulp after I juiced a bottle of carrots to use over the next couple of days.

The dehydrator will take up to 30 trays (which I don’t have) but they can all dry together at the same time.  I’ve never gotten into it to such a degree that I need 30.  Imagine filling them all.  Oh well, 5 does me for now.

There is so much more you can do… almost name the fruit or vegetable and it can be dried.

I dry at a low temperature to preserve the enzymes alive in my food.  The carrot and the beetroot can be dried and used to sprinkle on salads or cooked foods giving you more enzyme-rich food to eat which is totally vital if you want to live healthy.

  1. This looks so easy and my mind runs with ideas. Could you make soups and then dry them for later? I reckon you could. Can’t wait to try some of your ideas and have lots of my own

    • I see no reason at all why you couldn’t make a soup and dry it. You need to have the proper sheet in the dehydrator so the soup wouldn’t drip through. Mine came with two of those sheets. Let me know how you get on, I’d love to hear.
