I don't remember exactly why I bought a Ronco Food Dehydrator but I do know I was in University, it was super late and we had just returned from the bar. There is the real possibility that I might have been craving banana chips or dried apple slices.
I haven't used my dehydrator much over the years as it has been at my parents place where they use it every Fall to dehydrate the leftover herbs from their garden. As we began to plan our backcountry canoe trip this summer I knew it was time to get it back and tackle dehydrating full meals. It is easier than you might imagine to dehydrate meals, it just takes a bit of planning and time. Lots of time.
