Its about time! Ive only had it since last year (shame on me)!
Also.. Hubby was given a bag of apples... and three avacados from a work mates garden. Now the avacados will make a lovely guacamole..but the apples I plan to dehydrate tomorrow and also make some apple sauce.
I spent well over an hour trimming, chopping and washing the stalks...
and blanching them for a few minutes in boiling water
Then spreading them evenly on dehydrater trays.
I dont throw away the heads or bottoms...as they are full of flavour.
I pop them in a ziplockbag and stick them in the freezer
They are ideal for when you are making stock or beef broth
After 12 hours they are ready...
and its crazy they have dried to almost nothing
Five trays of celery reduced to less than a pint jar
But it will be wonderful in soups and stews
