Excellent book and not just for beginners 17 April 2014
By Beverly Clark - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I’ve recently read the benefits of eating dried fruit but you have to be careful as so many brands put preservatives etc. in the product thus wiping out the benefits.
I’ve heard it is easy (and much less expensive) to dry your own fruit and that is when I came across this book.
This book is touted as a book for beginners but I think those who have already started hydrating fruits, vegetables and meat will also benefit as the author includes a great assortment of tips and recipes.
I was quite pleased with the amount of information in this book. It is a fast read I think because the author created a very organized read.
Definitely recommend.

Worth the read 15 April 2014
By Phoebe Brown - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After reading another title from this author I decided to try reading another and I was not disappointed at all. The author has a knack for writing well thought out books for those persons who are clueless. I think this book was a good step towards learning much more about food preservation. I was shocked to find out some of those well known facts that had never occurred to me in the past. I really enjoyed reading this book and I think the author did a great job. This is a must read for beginner; you have to get it before you begin to do more in depth research.
An alternative to traditional canning … 26 Jun. 2014
By Big Daddy - Published on

I remember as a small boy (a long time ago: I am older than you are, trust me) watch my mother can garden produce. It looked like a lot of labor!

It was only recently that I became aware of "drying" as an alternative to canning. Not only is it less labor intensive (and does not require perspiring over a hot stove) but it does not require sterilizing glass jars or the associated work.

I confess to liking of dried fruits … chewy apricots being long time favorite!

The initial investment in drying can be almost as small as you like, and then the graduation to larger drying projects can be scaled up with inexpensive small steps for your convenience. Have a garden? Or, want to take advantage of lower seasonal prices in the grocery department of your local Supermarket? Try drying on a small, virtually zero cost scale. If it is for you, it is easy to graduate to the extent your garden (or supermarket) permits. Keep the big bucks in your wallet until you are convinced it is time for you to increase the scale! And, if you decide to escalate your production, it can be done in small dollars steps of your choosing. Enjoy!
A Practical Guide for Beginners 17 April 2014
By T. Coker - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I've recently decided to try my hand at dried/dehydrate foods, but for the most part I was largely unfamiliar with the process, so "Dehydration and Drying for Beginners" turned out to be a smart and practical choice for me as I delve into the process. Tara Ford does a wonderful job of keeping the book easy to understand, straightforward and filled with a wealth of information... giving a solid foundation of knowledge so that beginners like me can easily and successfully start preserving food. What I liked about this book was that the author really takes the time to explain the intricacies of dehydration and drying, exploring everything from the type of food to dry to the end result and "shelf life", etc. It's well-written with a great deal of tips, techniques and advice on bettering you results and on truly understanding the actual process. Overall, this was well worth the read and has me eager to get started on preserving my food in a natural and more cost effective/space-saving way.
Thin --VERY thin 13 April 2014

Poorly written and organized and skimpy with the info you really need as a beginner. Certainly not worth even the small price.
