Who Knew Dehydrating Was So Much Fun?

Excalibur 2400 4-Tray Dehydrator

Several weeks after opening the Excalibur 2400 4-Tray Dehydrator, it’s still on my kitchen counter because I’ve had so much fun testing it. This dehydrator is simple to use: simply fill the trays with your favorite fruits or vegetables, close the door, select a temperature, turn it on and leave it for several hours.

I’ve discovered some unusual and delicious uses for a surplus of fruits and vegetables. Zucchini became zucchini chips for hummus. Kiwi dipped in a sugar solution became candy. A mix of pineapple, strawberries, mangoes and bananas became the best fruit leather I have ever eaten! I’ve enjoyed dehydrated apples, tomatoes and so much more.

In my testing, I learned that each food took a few hours longer than the temperature and time guide that accompanied the dehydrator said that it would take. Once I got used to that, it was simple!
