Dehydrating Cabbage

Should I blanch it or not? Also will it keep once dehydrated in sealed mason jars? Im thinking of cutting it like you would for slaw and kraut.

When I dehydrate my cabbage I just give it a quick blanch, about 30 seconds or so. Once it is dehydrated I store mine in jars and it keeps just fine.

On a side note, I once took a dehydrating class and they passed around a bowl of dehydrated sauerkraut. It made for an interesting snack.

I never blanch it, just cut and dry. I store it in 1/2 gallon Mason Jars.

What can you use dried cabbage for? Is there any use for dried lettuce?
