Home-made Dehydrator

Since today’s sausages were an abject failure I have decided to share something else with you instead.

I’ve always wanted a dehydrator, but they cost between $150 and $300! This is less than ideal for our thrifty family. So tonight my innovative partner has constructed a home-made dehydrator. It looks fantastic! I’m eager to try it out.

What I’m after is suggestions for what we can make first.

If it turns out to be a winner he’ll share the instructions with you – and fear not! Other suggestions involved putting the oven on low for 8 hours at a time (far too expensive, power-wise) or constructing it out of a hairdryer set to run for 8 hours – hardly practical.

In other news, I now have a Facebook page, so you can like Tahini Sauce on Facebook, follow the posts from there, feed back directly to that page and talk to other friends following Tahini Sauce!

    You could try making dried pineapple in your dehydrator.

    • We did! It turned out brilliantly, and was delicious! Stay tuned for the follow up post. Our dehydrator ended up being free. We’re really pleased with it.

  2. How make!? How make!?
