Great Idea: Dehydrating Extra Produce

Mr. Petrie’s mom came to visit us last weekend.  She’s a whiz in the kitchen and she had a great idea for using extra garden produce: dehydrate it!  She purchased a dehydrator for us. (Thanks, G!!)

On my first go with the dehydrator, I made dried apricots, apples and blueberries.

The apples and blueberries were sweet, but the apricots were a little bitter.  I served them with dark chocolate, and they were perfect.  (Haha-I guess that’s kind of like covering salad in tons of Ranch dressing.)

Both girls enjoyed the dried fruit.  Even my new eater gummed an apple.

I have lots of dehydrating ideas.  If we’re friends, don’t be surprised if you get a dehydrated gift for your next birthday or Christmas. :P

Have a great day.
