Whether you produce a bountiful harvest from your garden or you’re a shopper who buys in bulk when foods go on sale, there are many reasons to try dehydration over other food storage methods, and the process is not difficult.
Having a dehydrator in your kitchen makes it a cinch to create your own healthy snacks. There are heaps of fruits and veggies you can dry with your kitchen dehydrator. A huge benefit of dehydrated fruits and vegetables is that they have a long shelf life, as well as being lightweight which makes them perfect to store or take along to hikes and other outdoor activities.

Legend has it that the beloved dessert, Tarte Tatin originated in the kitchen of the Tatin Sisters who operated a hotel in the French town of Lamotte-Beuvron. While making a pie for guests, one sister mistakenly placed the prepared apples in the dish first. She decided to lay the pastry crust on top, and turn it out after it had finished baking. The result was unusual, but delicious. A tatin is extremely versatile piece of cooking equipment. It is ideal for baking pastry tarts, quiches and pies because there is no need to blind-bake pastry first before adding the filling.
Having dessert doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re giving in to unhealthy choices. With a little creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, you can come up with the most delicious, satisfying and addictive cold treats that are perfect for all seasons. Feel free to tweak the choice of fruits and ingredients as you please – remember that experimentation is encouraged.
