October 14, 2009
Maisie helped me peel and slice the apples to put into our "new" dehydrator! Pam sent hers up with Mom after their trip to CA and OR, and we've gotten tons of use out of it already!
I was NOT impressed by the process of drying peaches, it takes forEVER to fill the racks, but I love the dried peaches. And I'm not fond of canned, at all. This little peeling/slicing gizmo made doing apples MUCH easier! These are golden delicious apples from Bonney Farm, and they are WONDERFUL! Our Ambrosias from the surrounding orchard are awesome dried, too. I also tried drying the very last of our tomatoes, and they've turned out pretty good, too! Will be drying MUCH more fruit next year!
