2.0 out of 5 stars An idiots guide on dehydrating foods 2 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book when I bought a dehydrator as comments on any dehydrator I read up on all said the instructions were virtually useless. As I had never dried food before it seemed a good idea to go with what I had hoped would be a good basic guide to drying to get me going. Unfortunatlly it is in American. You need to make sure you convert weights and maybe even the temperature into what you use. The recipes are very fiddly and rather messy too. Everything needs to be blanched and then dipped into citric acid then dried before putting it into the dryer. The few instructions that came with the dehydrator does not mention on many fruit or veg blanching. Only on a few. This book has put me of wanting to drying food as much as I had hoped to do. To learn about drying look for a different book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite useful 13 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is American, measurements are in "cups".

The majority of foods to dehydrate are "blanched" sometimes for seconds, then soaked in citric or ascorbic acid, or lemon juice, for up to 10 minutes prior to dehydrating; though I dehydrated strawberries as detailed in the book, which do not need blanching, and they were very good.

I prepared blueberries exactly as the book said - blanching for 30 seconds then soaking in citric acid solution for 10 minutes, then blotting dry. Oh dear what a mess.

I blotted as dry as possible on paper towel, then into the dehydrator, and what a squidgy mess they were, juice dripping all over the bottom of the dehydrator.

Unfortunately this has put me off quite abit, apart from the faff of blanching and soaking, I don't fancy juice dripping, the fruit has to go on the bottom tray so it doesn't drip onto other produce, which limits what and how much can be dehydrated in one go.

Think I may look for another book, anyone any ideas?

great guide and lots of things I wouldn't have even thought about in how to use all that dried produce once you've done all the work preserving it .

1.0 out of 5 stars great if youre american 15 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
all measurements and heat settings are in American, so you constantly have to google the difference. Also no real informatioj as once youve read one page on how to dry one fruit, it's such a small change to do a different one.
