Dehydration is one of the oldest methods of preserving food. While our ancestors relied on the sun to dry food, today we can buy dehydrated foods at the grocery store or use home appliances to dry foods ourselves. This process preserves food for much longer than its ordinary shelf life while keeping its nutritional value. Dehydrated foods can also be a healthier alternative to many snacks, Because they rehydrate in liquid, they're also easy to use in recipes. Try using dehydrated ingredients when making any of our recipes!
