To begin with, rinse off your radishes under cool water. Then fill up your kitchen sink part way or add cool water to a large bowl and add in 1/2 cup of vinegar and soak your radishes for about 10 minutes. Next, using a knife or mandolin, slice your radishes into thin slices. Take the slices and lay them on your dehydrator trays.
dehydrator and let the radishes dry. It takes about 6 hours for them to dry out completely or you can just leave them on overnight. It doesn't hurt anything and I generally turn on my dehydrator right before I go to bed and turn it off in the morning.
Once dry, store in a sealed mason jar.
Radishes are great and have many health benefits. We like to use them in the winter time for when someone is congested. They really help. Dehydrated radishes can be eaten straight out of the jar or you can sprinkle them onto salads; add onto a sandwich; or even sprinkle them onto a taco. They add a zesty little crunch.
If you want to reconstitute them, just add them to some cool water and let set for an hour or you can drop them into some really hot water for about 5 minutes. Or you can grind them into a vegetable powder or throw them into a soup pot.
