Last week I participated the Vegetable Dehydration Workshop. First we washed all the vegetables except mushrooms because they will turn brown if washed. Then we cut the vegetables in thin slices. Some vegetables such as corn and potato required a pretreatment by blancing which was briefly precook vegetables in boiling water or steam. Remove seeds, stems, pits from tomato, kale, mango, and cherries. The final step was to place vegetable slices on the dehydrator tray in a single layer and dehydrate. We used assorted dehydrated vegetables to make soup and all we add to the soup was salt and the soup tasted so delicious. It was a fun workshop and I enjoyed it very much.
