I have taught dehydrator classes and was always frustrated with the lack of good updated methods books and lack of DVD. This DVD and book will give you simple, straight forward approach to drying foods using a food dehydrator. I have been an avid dryer since the 70's and have dried over 2 tons a year. Little did I know that natural disaster would strike my family twice. Dried foods-we lived on for weeks while stranded with no electricity and no heat. Drying food for your family's use can help you to know where your food comes from, save great quality nutrition rather then all the heavily sprayed foods from who-knows where. You can save money, save great quality produce, and provide healthy snacks and make a meals at a fraction of the cost. The benefits you can taste yourself! Locking in the the goodness of your produce from your garden or Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) by drying the foods insures your family the best that nature offers all year-round.
