Workshop Review: The Art of Drying and Storing

Thank you all very much for coming out to our Art of Drying and Storing workshop on September 11. We had a packed house, and it was wonderful to see everyone there.

Among other skills, we learned how to make fruit 'roll-ups' with apples, pears, stone-fruits, and berries as well as how to make spiced pear and apple chips -- delicious!

We also learned just how easy and reasonable drying food can be, as you don't need an expensive food dehydrator to prepare dried food. A conventional gas or electric oven can be used for all recipes.
