This is something I had never put much thought into, believe it or not.
I picked up 2 bags of frozen veggies from Winco for a whoppin' $0.78 a piece!! Look out!!
Just threw them on the dehydrator trays...
And a few hours later...
Voila! We have dehydrated peas and carrots!!
I'm thinkin' fried rice... mmmmmm...
In the photo above, you're seeing 2 small bag's worth. It would take probably 6 of those bags to fill a #10 can, which means you're looking at an overall cost of just over $5.00/per can (that's including the cost of the can and oxygen absorber.)
Dehydrated veggies like this, hermetically sealed, will last around 10 years. Not bad! Not bad!
Boiled a tablespoon of the little guys in some water, just to be sure I'd like them after they were reconstituted.
