I love to dehydrate; in fact, I prefer dehydrating over canning. I find that it is more energy efficient and takes up a lot less room. Today I dehydrated some limes I found on sale. They had them for 4 for a $1.00.
When you dehydrate limes, you actually get 2 great uses out of them. I first use my citrus zester and use it on the outside of the limes to get lime zest.
I freeze some of it for use in recipes but the rest I dehydrate and grind into lime powder. This can be added to recipes or drinks.
Once that is done, I slice the limes with my mandolin and then put the lime slices in the dehydrator over night.
I store them in a mason jar and they are there for whenever I should need them. They are great to throw into a cold glass of water.
