Yes, I did get a Food Dehydrator for Christmas present (and I did use it the other day to make some awesome apple chips) but for those of you who can’t even spend $20 on one, you can try out this DIY on how to make a food dehydrator.
Of course, it’s not a complex concept as all the food dehydrator does is flow slightly-hot air through the food for couple hours to dry your food.
There’s also DIY on how to make a solar food dehydrator, if you are an eco-geek you might want to try out that route instead.
I have always wanted to make a REAL food dehydrator, but all the plans I have found always start out “make a box…” That lets me out! I don’t have the patience to make a box, let alone the skills to make it square, then add racks (also square!!) so I came up with a super easy way to make a container that looks like the commercial dehydrators using stacking trays in a cylindrical shape. It took me less than an hour and cost about 20 dollars. I could have scavenged and cut that in half, as I am sure many of you readers can.
