I try to stay crazy busy on day's hubby is on the road. I'm not much in the mood for quilting or sewing yet but organizing in the kitchen would do the trick. How can things get so turned upside down beats me. The kitchen pantry I can understand since one or more of the grands are always digging around looking for a treasure (or leaving one, found a Dora plastic action figure today) The back pantry, freezer, and all the rest is on me! Ha
For those of you new to this blog the reason I dehydrate lots, and lots of veggies is I can't pressure can since I have a glass top stove. PLEASE DO NOT pressure can on a glass top stove even if you have a buddy who is doing it. Not only can you ruin your very expensive stove you could be putting yourself in a dangerous situation. I don't want to fill the freezer with a whole lot of veggies that takes up room I can use for meats I find on sale or from our local farm, and frozen veggies can go bad from freezer burn pretty quickly. Dehydrating has turned out to be just the ticket. They take up very little space and can last a heck of a lot longer than we would ever need.
If you enjoy preserving food from the garden or what you find on sale, grab a cup of tea and enjoy all the video's at dehydrate2store. BTW, I am in NO WAY associated with dehydrate2store or the Excalibur dehydrator. I am just sharing what I have experienced.
Off for now to try and finish up the mess I have made of things. Tomorrow I should be able to share what 12 pounds of corn looks like after being dehydrated.
