When you’re looking for a healthy afternoon snack for you and your family, dried fruits and veggies can be the perfect solution. Veggie chips, apple slices, and dried banana chips are delicious! However, those store-bought brands can be really expensive and contain some extra yucky ingredients you want to avoid.
So, why not dehydrate your own food at home for healthier (and cheaper) snack options?
Electric dehydrators are a great way to dehydrate your own food; however, those can be really expensive. They’re also big and bulky, taking up a lot of space in your kitchen. And some people may only use this appliance once in a blue moon.
There is a better way to dehydrate your fruits and veggies – your oven!
Not only can you make your own snacks, but it’s a great way to use up excess amounts of food before it spoils and retain much of the nutritional value. Dried food is also great to make ahead of long trips, camping adventures or add in later to oatmeal, muffins, soups or other dishes.
