@rek Dehydrators kick ass! Recently we dehydrated a bunch of strawberries from our garden into tasty sweets. Great for garnishing pastries.

I imagine they could be very useful for stocking your ship's cabinets.

@Lambdanaut Yep! Super useful! Glad we have access to one :>. Dried strawberries sounds amazing. What's your favourite fruit or veg to dehydrate?

@rek The strawberries are highest on the list, though Mushrooms of all sorts also lend themselves very well to dehydration. Raisins of course are a thing if you've got grapes haha. Golden berries dehydrate very well. Fresh herbs can also be dehydrated to save them.
I originally got one to dehydrate my cubensis and that worked great.

@Lambdanaut Oh yea i will totally dehydrate some herbs :>, i didn't even consider that!

@rek ooh, how long does that take? i've never used one, but frequently dreamed about diy mango leather

@katnjiapus it's a good idea if you want to save money too, as you can buy lots of produce when it's cheaper and in season, then dehydrate it (or preserve it) to consume for months afterwards :>
