Canning is not the only method for preserving those giant backyard garden harvests every summer. We here at the homestead love to dehydrate fruits and vegetables as well. Dehydrated foods are perfect for backpacking and camping meals, having an easy backup food sources for when you have gone though all your canned goods, and also great for healthy snacking ideas.
I use a great method for storing all those fantastic dehydrated foods and keep them save from the outside elements like air and moisture. It is a great reusable method for food preservation.
