I thought I better jot down a post on some dehydrating I did last week before I forget.
I was chatting to Kev at An English Homestead on social media about dehydrating and I mentioned Vegetable Stock that is used as a base for instant soup,
here it is, vegetables and herbs cooked in water until tender,
then puree them down add some cornflour and simmer until its reduced to about a third, spread out on silicon sheets
pop in the dehydrator until its all dried out and breaks up easier
break it up a pop in the processor and grind down to a powder
there you have it instant vegetable stock.
While out getting supplies for the goats last week I saw an offer of 5 punnets of strawberries for £1
perfect for drying out.
wash and sliced onto trays in the dehydrator
I think they took about 6 hours, they need to be sort of flexible but dry
All bagged up they will be ideal for grand kids along with the pineapple I did last week.We have both had a busy week end, Martin had a group of friends to stay and help out with some jobs around the place, I went to Malvern quilt show with friends on a coach trip.
Next week end we have visitors again 14 of them this time, they are going to be camping down the field.
Right must go and get some sleep I am out again tomorrow meeting with some friends.
