In a raw kitchen, a dehydrator is not necessary for survival, but can easily take the place of a stove, oven and microwave, leaving you with a much larger variety of foods and snacks to choose from. Once you have learned to utilize your Excalibur dehydrator, you will quickly learn the wonderful assortment of crackers, breads, snacks, fruit leathers, seasonings, and storage options available to you.
Things you can do with your dehydrator (reference from Hippocrates Health Institutes’ Raw Foods Dehydration Permachart): “baked” stuffed vegetables, burgers and patties, “cooked” vegetables (marinating is accelerated by a dehydrator, imparting a cooked look and feel), crusts for pies, quiches, and pizza, dulse chips, energy and dessert bars, flax crackers, fruit and vegetable chips, fruit leather, germinated nuts/seeds, either seasoned or plain, granola, nut “cheese”, nut crackers and cookies, pancakes, sprouted grain breads and crackers, thickened/reduced sauces, “warm” food.
In a raw kitchen, the right equipment can make daily food preparation easier, more efficient, and more interesting. A food dehydrator greatly expands the possibilities by allowing for new and varied textures, concentrated flavors, and preservation. IT also provides a way to create “convenience” food for the raw foodist—a healthful way to prepare snacks that can ultimately save time, money, and satisfy children. See the Raw Foods Dehydration Permachart for more information on what this piece of equipment can do!
