Dehydrator

Postby BIGJIM72 » Sun Apr 06, 2014 21:37

I bought this little bit of kit,along with a vac packer, for hy homegrown hops.


Not wanting it to sit idle for the rest of the year,I often use it for drying fruits-good for snacking.This morning's efforts (apart from the loaf & slow roast lamb breast):


2 pineapples,couple of kilos of bananas & 3 punnets of strawberries from the market. Grand total of £3.50.I soaked the strawberries in a little juice & sugar for about 10 mins-they can be a bit tart. I don't bother with lemon juice on the bananas as they go fairly dark anyway during the process. My fruit may be sliced a little too thickly to dehydrate completely-but I find a thick slice semi dried much more pleasant to eat as a snack rather than thin slices completely dry.

Loading up




Lid on & timer set for 8 hours at 65'c.


I will need to rotate the shelves around a bit as they dry.The house smells wonderful.

If you like those deli style sunblush tomatoes,they work a treat in one of these-even using cheap supermarket tomatoes.

Some of the finished bananas may be heading into my porter in secondary as an experiment. I know most banana flavouring in beer comes from the yeast type & temp control so it will be interesting to see just how much flavour they will impart.

I have a medical condition- I am fool intolerant.

Dehydrators are a fabulous bit of kit :thumb:

we have one of these https://www.excaliburdehydrator.com/

Dried strawberries are wonderful as a snack, and homemade Jerky is the dogs danglies.

I keep looking at it and wondering what joys are in store for the brewing :D

I can't get hop plants, I've got a "I can and will eat anything I damned well want" dog (AKA Bull Terrier)

Hops + Dog = very dead dog :(


Dehydrated wort leather.... It might catch on

Jerky is so easy:

Beef cut into 1/2" wide strips - This has to be lean cut
Marinade - I like soy sauce with salt, pepper and chili

put in freezer bag shake 'til mixed then drop in the beef, give a good shake to cover the meat then leave a few hours to soak in.

put the beef into the dehydrator and dry

Bloody wonderful with a full bodied stout :drink:
