Tips for Dehydrating – February, 2016

UPDATE February 15, 2016: I have culled this article down to just the links for the articles. It has become a MONSTER with all the graphics. I hope it will be easier for you to navigate.


The tips I posted in January were well received. You have asked for me to continue so here it is, February Tips! Thank you all for your comments and sharing of the January Tips so that others may also learn.

I will continue to put together a file of short tips to help our members practice safe methods of dehydrating. I am endeavoring to post one tip each day. If anyone has something to contribute or has a question they want answered, please let me know.

NOTE: I have received a few comments that the tips graphics were hard for some to read, so I have provided links to an “Easy-to-Read Text” file with each Daily Tip. All January Tips have been updated with this feature and February will continue with the same.

I have attached the links to the products that I use. These are affiliate links because I have become a member of the Amazon Associates Program. When you click on a link to order there is no extra charge to you. However, this website receives a small commission to keep running. All of these products are in use in my own kitchen that I have ordered myself from Amazon.
