My Favorite Garden Tool? A Food Dehydrator!

Posted | 2 Comment(s)

If you buy just one garden kitchen apparatus this season, let it be a dehydrator. It will pay for itself with just one use when you make your own dried tomatoes in olive oil. You can find the recipe right here on

I use the dehydrator not only for plum tomatoes and cherry tomatoes but for drying zucchini and stone fruits like apricots and peaches. It is my favorite piece of equipment in garden season.

I've had one of these for years and never used it. I just don't know what to do with all the dried vegetables. What would you suggest?
