Freeze drying your harvest – is it for you?
I’ve not bought or used a freeze dryer but a friend just did, and she’s very happy with it. Has anyone here bought or used a freeze dryer?
Here’s the one she bought.
And they have a page on preserving your harvest. I might note that it does not have to be YOUR harvest, which might make this ideal for urban preppers. And it might be good for quantities: if I go to my local SC State farmer’s market, I can get produce 1/4 the cost of supermarket food. What is holding me back from doing more of that the the insane quantities you have to buy to get that discoun.t..it literally was more than I could can before some of it went bad.
It’s also a way to preserve meat and pressure canning that is a bear.
Please chime in with your experiences, even if it’s just you eating freeze dried food or a neighbor or friend having one of these.
