I remember back to the taste of the dried fruit my grandmother made from fruit in her orchard. Nothing compared - not even fresh fruit. The dried fruit was so much sweeter and the room smelled like fresh pie. She didn't have the luxury of a food dehydrator, but used the sun and hand made screens. The taste and smell is still filed away in my memory. Now as an adult, I use a dehydrator and enjoy that same flavor and aroma with my children. I have taught a number of dehydrator classes and was frustrated with the lack of good, updated books. Dehydrator Delights gives you a simple, straightforward approach to drying fruits and vegetables. I have been an avid dryer for about 11 years and about 12 tons later, I'll give you the benefit of my short cuts and lessons learned.
