Cooking #22 Dehydrator
Yep, got myself a dehydrator. It works fine. What you see there is a bunch of kale leaves being dried. Kale chips are rather popular, don't you know? So, I dried them. It works well enough, I suppose, but what happens is that I have to rotate the tray every so often. The end result is great, though. So, this technique is certainly doable.
I'm unsure about contamination. My thinking is that the warmth will cause bacteria to multiply rapidly. So, I don't know. Perhaps if you maintain a septic kitchen it's alright. For me, though, this dehydrator is going back out.
Got to admit, though, those dried kale chips were terrific!
