Dehydrating 101: Herbs, Veggies, Leathers, Jerky and Camping Food

1211032.large.jpg

Is your dehydrator collecting dust in your garage? I’ll show you great ways to put it to use. From dried herbs and veggies blends for dips and soups, to fruit and veggies leathers, and THE BEST just-add-water camp food you ever ate. We’ll discuss which kinds of foods dehydrate best, which ones to skip (hint: tuna), and why. We’ll taste, touch, smell and even RE-hydrate surprising flavors combinations that make the most of the food in our fridges.

At the Greater Des Moines Botanical Gardens! Tickets are here.
