fruit and veg in the dehydrator

It's hard to keep the family full of fresh vitamins all winter long, even with the freezing and canning I do in the summer. Another way to get the kids to eat plenty of real nutrients is by making apple chips. I found apples really cheap at the grocery this week so I bought a few bags and got them in the dehydrator.

I've found the trick to be to slice them really thin and not to rush the process. It takes a few days unless you can afford one of the high powered dehydrators. Apples take at least two full days. Bananas take three or four.

Next up, though, is carrots soaked in tangerine juice and a little raw sugar. I'll let you know how it goes.
