Here are some suggestions for extending the shelf life of dehydrated food:

  • Store in airtight containers at 50ºF - 60ºF.
  • Store the food in a dark area, away from light.
  • Only stow the food after it is cooled.
  • Check for moisture in the containers several times the first week after the food has been dried. If moisture appears when it's shaken, put the food back in the dehydrator to extend its shelf life.
  • Stock stored food away from concrete because of its ability to transfer moisture, thus off a concrete floor or away from a wall.
  • Best to have air running under the container.

If contamination is suspected, place dried food in the oven at 175 F for 15 minutes.

 

Save money and preserve the nutritional value of your food. Dehydrated vegetables and fruits have a shelf life from 5 years to over 30 years (dependent on the type of food and how it is stored). The Excalibur Dehydrator’s large, nine-tray capacity allows you to buy your produce in bulk and dry the extra to eat it throughout the season. If you are a gardener, you can conserve your summer harvest. Turn your raw food into nutritious and delicious dried food. Concentrate the flavors of your favorite fruits, greens, and vegetables.

Dehydrators have a wide variety of uses. Make your own crackers using pureed vegetables and seeds. Stock your pantry with dried strawberries, peaches, grapes, cherries, apples, figs and apricots – all made without the added sugar and sulfur dioxide commonly found in commercially prepared dried fruit. Make your own dried tomatoes and peas. Use dried veggies as a topping for salads for a nice crunch.

Use the Excalibur Dehydrator to enliven your meals with homemade dried herbs, and add kale chips, fresh fruit roll-ups and leathers, banana chips, and prunes to your lunchbox. You can also use it to make natural treats that your pets will love.

This dehydrator has a built-in timer and superior temperature control. It dries items evenly.
