:woohoo:Woooooo Hoooooo!!!!! Hubby bought me a food dehydrator today! :katertater: I know some fruits/veggies dehydrate fairly well ~ Strawberries, bananas, carrots, peppers, & spinach. But that is about all I know, so I have a few questions..... 1. To dehydrate chicken, it is cooked first, right? 2. Should veggies & fruits be chopped small or sliced thin to dehydrate quicker? Which is better or does it matter? 3. Can I drizzle or brush honey on fruits before the dehydrating process? 4. Which foods do not dehydrate well, and should be avoided? 5. Do foods lose their nutritional value after dehydrated? Also, any & all other food suggestions would help a lot. I would like to dehydrate mango, kiwi, & papaya, since I serve these foods frequently. I am just not sure if these fruits can be dehydrated effectively. Thanks for all of your help!
