It’s always great when we come across our products featured in magazines, but when editors write about the importance of the product from a health and wellness point of view…that’s what we love to see!  In the September issue of Family Motor Coaching Magazine there is an informative article about drying food to take on your next motor home trip including dehydration tips for your fruits and vegetables.

Food dehydration has been on the rise as one of the top food trends we see growing year to year. Drying is one of the oldest methods of preserving food and compared with other methods, drying is quite simple.

Whether you garden, buy from local farmers or are conscious of the high cost of store bought dried products, drying foods at home is easy, nutritious and delicious. Dried foods can be eaten on the spot for snacks or stored to enjoy seasonal foods all year.

Honey Sweetened Apples
Ingredients:
6 Apples, any variety
2 Tsp lemon juice
Dashes of cinnamon
3-4 Tbsp honey

Directions:
Peel and thinly slice apples. Toss apple slices with
honey, lemon juice (to prevent browning), and cinnamon.
Place the apple slices on the dehydrator trays so they
are not touching. Dehydration time will depend on how
thick your apple slices are…thinner slices will take
less time to dehydrate. Set your dried apples out on
the counter, serve alone or with cheese slices, and
they will be gone before you know it!
