Electricity Free Food Dehydration
From a prepper/survivalist standpoint, the more we can do without electricity the better. Honestly if the SHTF we could be living without it.
“Preserving food by drying is easy and you don’t even need to purchase an electric dehydrator. There are several ways to dehydrate food without electricity and each method works better for certain foods. I recently dried cantaloupe, cherries, mushrooms, peppers, basil, celery leaf, chives, chamomile, lavender, cilantro, and feverfew without a dehydrator or electricity.
Pick your food
Some foods lend themselves very well to drying. When deciding how to preserve a food it’s a good idea to think about how you will use the food in the future. It’s not worth it to go to the work of preserving something you will never use or would be better stored in another way, so have a plan beforehand. I often eat our fruits as a snack, add the spices into foods dried and crumbled and use bulkier items as ingredients in a soup.”
