"You pray in your distressand in your need;would that you might also prayin the fullness of your joyand in your days of abundance."--Kahlil Gibran
Lovely harvest and lovely thoughts!
Beautiful!!I am researching dehydrators right now (due to my serious beef jerky "problem" since my surgery!). Do you love your dehydrator? would you recommend it? How about this one:http://www.dryit.com/ (i like it has no fan)
Do you have a worm composter or does it get too cold there? They'd love the tomato trimmings...
MMM... yum, are those from your garden? Your CSA?
Inky--We have a Nesco Dehydrator--simple and inexpensive--and have been very happy with it. The fruit-roll-ups we made with white peaches were sensational! I think if we lived in a less humid area, I would have investigated getting a solar dehydrator.Beadlizard--We just have a regular composter but every time I see a worm bin I get all excited. What fun that would be with my son! Right now I use the tomato trimmings along with other fruit and veggie trimmings for soup stock.Amy--Oh, I wish they were from our garden! Our tomato plants needed a bit more sun, a bit more compost, and a bit more water to be very productive. These came from a farm stand in Dickerson, MD with great prices on bushels and half bushels of produce. I definitely recommend them.
That's how I've dealt with the maters this year - so easy! I used a different model of Nesco and I'm totally happy with it. I also do peach slices and last year I did cherries. I haven't tried fruit roll-ups yet but I like my dried fruit combined with other things, like cereal.
