Well, this evening I am officially welcoming into my kitchen an early Christmas present…. A dehydrator! Excalibur, 5 tray. I almost bought white, to match the thermomix (hehe), but went with black in the end. So I am christening it tonight. It will be drying food while I dream.
I couldn’t figure out what to start with though. I had big dreams of starting with kale chips or linseed crackers or fruit leather or something spectacular, but with the machine finally in my hot little hands it was all a bit daunting. So I took the safe, enter-the-pool-slowly-via-the-steps method rather than jumping in at the deep end. However, I can’t run a dehydrator overnight, using all that electricity, and only do a couple of trays. Of course. So all five trays are full!
