5 pounds of carrots before…………..
………..and after. Took almost 8 hours, cos this was a lot of carrots.
I’ve also done a batch of carrots and celery mixed, and some collards.
Veggies should be blanched for about 2 minutes before dehydrating. I was taught a neat trick about after. If you always put the veggies in a plastic bag for a few hours after they’re dehydrated, you can tell whether you got all the moisture out of them. If any moisture collects inside the bag, they aren’t dry enough. You can see moisture inside a plastic bag easier than you could if you put things in any other kind of container. So, a few hours in the bag, check it out carefully, then into the containers you will store them in. In a cool and dark place.
I didn’t grow these. Wish I could grow some, but my ground here isn’t good for root veggies.
