Help! I’m Disappointed With My Dehydrator

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: Hi! I just recently purchased this food dehydrator. It’s my first foray into creating my own dehydrated goodies. As an avid camper, backpacker, and penny-pincher, I figured the dehydrator would be a great way to use up produce before it goes bad as well as save some money on otherwise expensive commercially available products.

So far I’ve tried a variety of fruits and vegetables, and so far I’ve been pretty disappointed. Everything turns to a withered, tasteless, jaw-aching chunk instead of being chewy with the original flavor coming through. I’ve also had a terrible time finding good information about recipes; I’m a little lost here!
