Joan commented on Wednesday’s post that she makes her own sweet potato chews in her food dehydrator. What does one do with a food dehydrator other than make sweet potato chews? I became curious and googled. I found a page for 20 dehydrator recipes and another for 40 uses for a dehydrator. Banana chips! Kale chips! I found a not too expensive dehydrator on Amazon that had excellent reviews and placed it in my shopping cart where it slept quietly overnight. I didn’t want to make an impulse purchase. But zucchini chips! Eggplant “bacon”! I should have waited another day or so but I couldn’t resist and bought it yesterday. Fruit “leather”, here I come!

    Yes. I love my dehydrator. I make their chicken chews and lots of stuff for humans too. LOVE the fruit leathers. The oven works fine for dehydrating but heats up the house in the summer. Happy experimenting!

    My husband Rob would shudder at the thought of trying to pass off dried eggplant as “bacon”. Now I want to buy a dehydrator for the sole purpose of horrifying him. :-> But for a really good time (for people and beagles), get yourself an electric smoker (Free shipping if you’re an Amazon Prime member!). I swear, every time Rob brings the trays of smoked meat back into the kitchen to cut everything up, Josie gets 3 inches taller and 10 years younger, LOL!

    @ Laurie. which one did you get? I have been putting it off for awhile, but with all the scares about treats I’m thinking its time.
    @Susan, I bought an electric smoker for my husband for Christmas, we love it. So do the pups 🙂 taller and younger, yep that describes it perfectly.
    TGIF!!!!! It’s been a long week workwise.

    Ooohhh electric smoker???
    I’m going to have to look into that!

    Yes it has been a LONG week

  5. It’s been a horrifying long week. The Dragons were out in force and we had trouble slaying them all.

    I had a food dehydrator a long time ago to dehydrate fruit and veggies and maybe I didn’t have the patience for it at the time because I ended up selling at a garage sale to a guy that wanted to dehydrate MEAT. I’m sure that they have been improved greatly. I mean, that was before cell phones!!! OMG!
