In the olden times food was preserved by salting, smoking or drying Dehydration is one of the easiest ways to preserve food. You don't need to buy special jars, preservatives or special equipment. You don't even need to buy a dehydrator. Your oven, whether it be full-sized oven or a toaster oven, can dehydrate food perfectly in the same amount of time. A vapour collector is mounted on the upstream inlet end of an oven having a gas-circulating means and intended for dehydrating the food. This vapour collector collects the moisture that is absorbed from the food during the dehydration process
How you prep foods depends on what you are dehydrating. Here are some tips for the best results:
? To prevent fruits from turning brown, soak them in a half-and-half mixture of lemon juice and water for five minutes before drying.
? For foods to dry evenly and thoroughly, the pieces need to be the same size and thin. Around
