Dehydrator Help!

in All Posts

Look what came in the mail for me today:


Squeeeeeeeeeeal!  An Excalibur Dehydrator!


THANK YOU, Excalibur!  I know these babies are the top of the line dehydrators, and I cannot wait to try it out!


It even came with a "dehydrator cookbook!"


I flipped through the book and it is filled with great recipes, but I want recommendations from YOU!  Obviously, Gina’s macaroons are at the top of my list, but what else should I create?


Send me dehydrator recipes, please! 🙂

    The first things I would try would be…Gina macroons, pineapple, apples, bananas! Ohhh…and maybe some jerkey!

    dried strawberries!!! They are so delicious!!

    Where did you order that from?

    have you seen the episode of friends where chandler gets a new roommate who has a dehydrator and wants to put a water balloon in it? haha.. not suggesting that, though!

    Wow that’s awesome! Can’t wait to see what you come up with. I think Gina has done some other cool stuff, as well, maybe some crackers?

    so cool! I don’t have any suggestions, but I would love to make gina’s macaroons and TONS of dehydrated fruit.

    I had a dehyrdator long ago but the only thing I ever really did was dry fruit…good luck though!

  • Lindsay April 24, 2009, 10:29 am

    Holy crap, did you get that free just because you have a food/fitness blog?? That is crazy, maybe I should write more 😉 Have fun with it!

  • Runeatrepeat April 24, 2009, 10:34 am

  • Leila April 24, 2009, 10:37 am

    ohhh, I’m so jealous and excited for you…I say dried bananas!

  • Megan April 24, 2009, 10:45 am

    I have always wanted one of these! I can’t wait to see how you put it to use. 🙂

    One of my favorites are dried pears, they have a chewier texture than apples. I slice them thin with a mandoline slicer and dry them overnight. I have a bag of dried apple and pear slices and I always am digging for the pear pieces 🙂
