Richard Harvesting

Dehydrated and Bottled Items

Richard and Jackie have been eating and giving away a lot of their harvest but they have also been dehydrating and bottling some of it. Using a small round layered dehydrator, Richard was dehydrating apples on the top layers and cucumbers on the bottom. He said he has never dehydrated cucumbers before but had so many he decided to give it a try.
He had several bags of dehydrated vegetables; some of those are shown in the pictures. Jackie said they use the vegetables in soups and stews as they hydrate really well and they give a lot of flavor to them. Richard bottled tomato juice. It has some of his peppers and onions in it as well as some spices. The apples are used as snacks when they are hiking or some of them are put in their 72 hour kit for use later if needed.
