What you'll learn in this food tours class:

It's time to learn how to make dehydrated foods! Dehydration is an excellent method for preserving a bountiful harvest - tomatoes, grapes, apples, and so much more. With dehydration you can make your own JERKY and fruit leather with your own ingredients.

Marie will teach you how to dry herbs, vegetables, fruits, meats and more. Learn why the ancient technique of dehydrating is still used today, what you need to get started, how to choose a dehydrator, safety concerns, storage, and more.

You will come away from this class with the skills and confidence to stock your pantry with healthy, nutritious, easy to use foods for the year.  Take this class before our Solar Dehydrator class May 7th!
