I've been busy over the past 24 hours. I made another 16 pints of strawberry jam yesterday evening. I've also dehydrated 12 quarts of strawberries. Homemade granola was also on the agenda today. I am enjoying dehydrating the strawberries as I am adding it to the granola mix. That stuff is gonna be really dangerous to me.....it's good

Dehydrated another 7 quarts of strawberries and 2 quarts of blueberries from the freezer today. I'm not sure how these blueberries will turn out. Has anyone dehydrated berries from frozen before???

My friend let me borrow his water bath, so I could practice canning. I can't wait to start!

I have. When we thought our freezer was dying, I started dehydrating and canning everything in it. They turn out fine. Takes them a little longer frozen though to dry.

Thanks Foggy....I knew you would know

I quick thawed mine in a pan of warm water before tossing them in the dehydrator. I don't know if that will expedite the process or not. I can't wait to make the next batch of granola. It's gonna be strawberry/blueberry granola. Doesn't that sound delish over a bowl of vanilla yogurt???

That does! Quick thawing them too helps them dry faster, so you're good to go.


I have more strawberries to dry since I bought more Friday at Aldi's. The one flat per customer was horrible. I did get oldest ds to buy some though so that worked.

Plus I still have turnips to do, more beans to can, carrots now since I bought 5 bags (10lbs) at Aldi's too for .39 per bag, and some butternut squash still to work on.

Seems like I'm forgetting something too. eek.

Foggy I don't know if you need any more but they had lifted the limit today. They had also raised the price back to .79/quart but I was more than okay with that. It's still less than 1/2 what Bi-Lo is wanting for the same thing. I bought 4 more flats :/ Gonna be busy tonight It's a good kind of busy though. I feel like I am in my element when I am canning/dehydrating/preserving.
