A Really Busy Day!

The photo is blurry but you get the drift!...  I have prepared and am dehydrated six trays of peach slices.  I wish I had ordered oxygen absorbers earlier, but I'm sure the slices will be fine until they arrive this week.  Besides, it will take at least a day and a half to dehydrate.  Lots of work but the reward is great at the end!

I have my eyes on the Excalibur Dehydrator.  Oh how I'd love to have it on my counter...  Nine trays....temperature control.  Serious stuff...but...I've got to show Hubs I am serious about dehydrating before I broach the subject.  Perhaps if I make him some beef jerky he might cave in and surprise me with one under the tree.

Peaches today...plums tomorrow?  We'll see!


  1. That looks yummy. I dehydrated lots of apples a couple of Falls ago and I store them in glass jars and they keep well. Nice in the winter.

    1. I'm looking forward to trying apples! Also...son #1 brought large glass pickling jars home. Great idea!

  2. My friend made lots of jerky for back packing. It was awesome. I like dried tomatoes.

  3. I've Beverly tried tomatoes, Red but I'm adding them to my list!

  4. Looks great! I've never had one of those wonderful dehydrators, but this makes me want to join in the fun! :-)

  5. hmmm, maybe i'll try this, looks delicious!

  6. Oooo! The Excalibur is on my wish list too. I'd say give the jerky a try. Served with a pie made with your peaches for dessert. That should cinch it. :-)
