Tips for Ready-Made Foods >
Alternate all foods when dehydrating. Non-stick cooking spray will help avoid sticking. When dehydrating, keep the dome open slightly to let moisture escape. Do not let the dome stay on when the oven is off, this will cause moisture build up.
1. Dehydrating Beef
Have beef cut about 1/4-inch thick. Ask your butcher to have them slice the beef for dehydrating. If you cut on your own, have beef partially frozen. Dehydrate on power level 4 about 3 hours.
2. Dehydrating Herbs
Wash and dry. Leave stems to place on the racks. To prevent herbs from moving off of the rack, place the 2-inch rack on top of the herbs. Dehydrate on power level 2 about 2 hours.
