Food Dehydrator

I have only just recently purchased a Food Dehydrator and tested out drying some tomatoes. I am so pleased how they turned out, especially seeing the tomatoes are green house grown and not the best quality this time of year. Next batch I will try some herbs

I think they would make a great gift

Do you have a food dehydrator?? Any tips or recipes are greatly appreciated!!!

I have that exact same dehydrator. Great for doing banana's in. We also make jerky in it.

We have a very old one that we use fairly regularly ... Every year we get mangos by the box (many mango farms & friends who grow them here) and dehydrate a great many of them (we also cut them up and freeze them too :) LURVE our mangos!!! ... A cousin & her mum actually gets them by the 100kgs and spend weeks freezing and dehydrating them so they can have mangoes daily, year-round!!) ... We've also tried doing bananas; kiwifruit; considered grapes when they're cheap but they're always gone so quick we never have enough, lol; yes, tomatoes; and my sister has also made almond meal in there!!!

Your tomato jar looks lovely. My neighbor used to make apple slices with the skin on. They were delicious.

I've done apricots too. I use it more for the herbs though as they never go astray.
