How does one dehydrate food in an oven?
The only Oven that i would even atempt to dry food in would be a Gas
Oven, Just use the heat from the pilot light to heat it !
A electric can't go low enough without Killing it LOLOLO
and a wood stove Oven also is to hard to regulate to a low enough temp for
long enough time to deal with it !
It would be better to just us a Card Board Box and heat from a Light to do it ! May be fire hazard if not done rite !
Hope this helps !!!!
Before I even knew what a dehydrator was, I was making jerky in our kitchen oven. To make jerky I would turn the oven on at its lowest temperature and leave the door cracked open just a little bit. It worked for jerky so I would imagine it would work for anything.
I have Dehydrated Potatoes, Carrets,Cellery and Onions on racks by a wood
heater, We blanched all vegies with a Pesevitive made by Kodak, Yes Kodak
the film company !!! We bought it from a Pharmacey ? Sorry can't remmember
the Name of it !
I'll have to look it up ?
Then we put the vegies in Seal-a-Meal bags, I'd use a Vacuume Sealer now !
We used them on a 5 1/2 month Campout in the stix near Happy Camp, Oregon near the Oregon, California Border, They worked Grate !!!
The thinner the vegie the faster the drying time, About a day or so ?
Hear are some Link's !
