Dehyrdrating

   My husband bought me an Oster dehydrator a year ago this past Christmas.  I had wanted one forever but  after I got it, I never used it.  Never until this past week that is.  Finally opened her up and thought I'd see how it went.  Well, basically, we have been dehydrating non-stop.  We love it.  Just wanted to share some of it with you all.

The dehydrated mushrooms.

   Dehydrated mushrooms can be re-hydrated in water or just pop them into soup, dressing, stew, sauce, or casserole and let them cook with the rest of the ingredients.

The dehydrated oranges.
  Dehydrated oranges make a great snack.  They also can be cut up and put into a marmalade.  Or use them in a marinade for meat.  Put them in a stew, or toss one into your iced tea glass or hot tea glass.  Cook them in with some sweet potatoes or fish, or in your homemade bread, or even in a salad.  (Okay, I'm making myself hungry!)

   Banana chips make such a great snack.  Yum!

Dehydrated limes.
The lemons and limes can be tossed into a glass of water or tea for flavoring.  You can also add them to a soup for some extra flavoring.  Just be sure to remove it before you eat the soup because of the peel.  You can grind up the lemons for lemon powder or to make lemon pepper seasoning or use the powder in jams.  Or you can throw some into the crock-pot with your chicken for some extra "oomph".
