I've finally gotten into using my dehydrator this year!

Have mostly dried herbs - parsley, rosemary, sweet basil and regular basil.

Also have done a couple bathes of dried tomatoes!!!

I'm going to try using the dehydrator on a batch of salt dough ornaments next - we're crafting gifts ahead of time this year and it will be nice to not have to have the oven on for so long drying them...

Oh fun Sara. I do a tray of each, or whatever is needed. I will dry more before it freezes, but for now it is good enough.

Michelle, at the end of the season I dry the herbs that have grown since the last cutting. This cutting is usually small so I combine the herbs and call it Herbs de Texas a play on Herbs de Provence. Gotta have fun while taking care of business.

finally got some basil, sage, and rosemary drying this afternoon. A few tomatoes will be up next. The season is slowing down, things are getting put away.

I dried parsley. I have a dehydrator but I don't like to use it for herbs as the fan blows it around so I put it on a clean iwindow screen and put it in my car parked in the sun. I figured the car isn't going anywhere now so why not.

Andrea, I had those same thoughts about drying apples coated with cinnamon sugar, was the mess really worth it. lol I have the last of the onions drying, and drying a tray of tomato skins. Ladies do you use powder to add more tomato flavor in dishes?

More tomatoes in the dehydrator today. The small red pear ones. I found a recipe that uses honey, balsamic vinegar, basil and a few other things. They were so sticky I ran the dehydrator for 3 days. They do taste good but I don't know how long they will keep. Back to plain tomatoes.

Good information Sara about garlic. You keep us informed for sure. Good luck with your drying Andrea, and Theresa. I have one more batch of onion to dry and then get back at some herbs. The rosemary and sage and basil needs to be done.

My new cookbook "The Garlic Lovers' Cookbook Vol II from Gilroy CA the Garlic Capital of the World has this info:

1 average size clove of fresh garlic = 1/8 tsp garlic powder

Now I know how much garlic powder to use in recipes.

This morning drying chives, sage, Italian oregano.

Hi Andrea, welcome to the Farm. Sounds like you have a good place for your dehydrator. Over the last couple of days I've dried 2 bunches of kale - one bunch to go - and 1 bunch of turnip greens.

Tomatoes and Kale. Dehydrated garlic a few weeks ago and more to go. I run my dehydrator on an enclosed porch with a fan in he window.
YellowRose Posted - Aug 10 2020 : 05:50:09 AM
Drying my last can of crushed tomatoes for awhile. I need to start drying greens for winter soup & beans. May start with kale - now to put it on my shopping list for this week.

Michelle I've dried onions that you could hardly smell at all than others would run out the house.

Michelle that's a lot of onions so I guess the porch is the best place for them.

Keep those dehydrators going. Good stuff comes out of them. Dried tomatoes, interesting idea. My tomatoes are just starting to ripen finally. I have 6 trays of onions going this morning. Out of the porch. Grating them with my mixer, in the kitchen is bad enough. Cleans out the sinus. Pulled the rest of my onions also. I have grated some with bad bottoms on them. So will tie the remaining ones up with twine and hang them to dry for a while. I will then grate and freeze some.

Finished drying tomatoes this morning. Brought them in at 9 p.m. last night because I didn't want to have to check on them during the night.

Drained 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes overnight - in dehydrator.
Draining another can to dry later today.

I find tomato powder handy and I also want the cans to make tin can windsocks for sisters & me. Will decorate with apple fabric for our September Apple Festival and will use it for a badge. I just love it when what I am doing in my kitchen flows into MJF projects.

Drying 4 roma tomatoes today. I've wanted dried tomatoes for a pasta dish but when I checked it out a 8.5 oz jar was $4.29 at Alti. I did the math - 4 roma tomatoes 99 cents so I'm making my own.

Teresa happy drying!

Drying one tray of sage this morning. Looking forward to trying it in a beef dish.

In the other tray I have a small can of chipotle peppers to make powder for Tex-Mex dishes.

Thanks Michelle I never thought about using dried sage in meatloaf - will give it a try next time I make it. Now to dry some to have on hand.

Dried sage is good in beef dishes as well, like meatloaf. I use it quite often with beef.

Dried sage -- turkey stuffing! Sage dressing is our favorite.

Sherone I mostly use my sage fresh - today it's fresh in black beans -dried for cornbread dressing. What do you use dried sage in? I would like to have ideas for using dried sage.
