dehydrator conscious cooking

You know that you are getting older when you are excited about getting new kitchen appliances for Christmas. Seeing as this is the time of year you may be given a bunch of Amazon/Macy gift cards etc… from family on the mainland, the following are two gift suggestions for your kitchen and a recipe to demonstrate your newfound skills.

Dehydrated foods maintain higher nutritional value than cooked foods and can provide healthy snacks for the kids, think kale chips, dried fruit or now…
