A Dehydrator Alternative

Use a sweater drier!

  • In a pinch, you can use all sorts of equipment to dehydrate.

I first bought mine when I was making a lot of pasta and needed a clean place for it to dry.  Then I set them aside and forgot about them for a while.  The other day I had a bit of  Basil to dry and no dehydrator space available. So I pulled out my sweater/pasta drying rack and set it up.
Compact and Easily Stored

These are rally inexpensive, only a few dollars, and they work just fine.

Use them with:
  • Herbs and leafy greens
  • Veggies
  • Fruits
  • Cooked pasta
I would not recommend air-drying meats. They need 140 degrees to eliminate the risk of botulism.
