  • Building a Food Dehydrator

    another great article from Backwoods Home:

    http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles/sanders63.html



    I'm not in the least bit handy, so I have a mass-produced small dehydrator from Walmart (still in the box, for shame!). I've also seen many, many websites on making a solar dehydrator out of cardboard boxes. I like this website: http://www.motherearthnews.com/Do-It...ehydrator.aspx



    Might try out that project with the Cub Scouts come warmer weather.

      I built and am using a modified copy of the backwoods home unit and it works great. As I am a master scrounger I was able to build it with parts I had kicking a round the shop. I did have to buy the trays and the heat source that I bought here. http://www.reptilesupply.com/product...roducts_id=362 . The fans I used came out of junk computer towers that people tossed out at the dump. Right now I have 10 lbs. of bananas drying ( big sale at the fruit stand) I dry fruit, veggies, herbs, seeds and jerky both meat and fish. Here is a link to a homemade dehydrator that is easy to make and needs no tools or skills to build also great for people in apartments http://www.dehydratortrayliners.com/ . Here is 1 more great resource link http://www.canningpantry.com/drying-foods-indoors.html
