So, for the last few weeks I have been putting my dehydrator to good use. I have been trying to empty out my freezers a bit to make room for meats and I had several bags of frozen peas and carrots Did you know you can dry frozen peas and carrots? It's awesome! No prep work needed! Perfect for busy moms! Drying them is the easiest thing in the world--just let them thaw and then place them on your dehydrator racks and dry on 135 degrees for 6 or so hours. When they have cooled down, just put in glass jars to store. See, I told you, easy peasy! When they go on sale at the super market. do not freeze them--dry them!!
Peas and carrots almost done!
I also picked up some mushrooms reduced at the market.
Drying your foods is a great way to preserve your stash. Now it can be done with no prep needed at all. It's a win -win! Saves time and money!
