With today’s seemingly instant availability of food and with literally every modern home having a refrigerator and freezer for food storage, you may ask "who needs a food dehydrator?" You might say, "If I can dash up to the local grocery store at a moment’s notice and get all of my fruits, veggies, meats etc., why would I ever need to a food dehydrator to preserve my food?" My knee jerk response to this mentality is "who wouldn’t want a food dehydrator?" A modern food dehydrator can be one of the most versatile and wisest health and wellness equipment purchases you could make. But, it is a fair question…just who does need a food dehydrator? Lest talk about that for just a bit.
I absolutely believe, without a doubt that any family of two or more people who have any size of a vegetable garden should have a kitchen food dehydrator. If you have had any experience with a garden at any time of your life you know that the abundance of your harvest is always far more than your original planting. The planting of one tomato plant can reap a dozen or more tomatoes. Your family’s ability to eat all of your gardens harvest abundance is probably pretty slim. With a food dehydrator you have the ability preserve this produce for your family’s enjoyment over the next several months. Granted, your neighbors probably won’t like you owning this dehydrator since they won’t be getting near as much free goodies out of your garden.
Today’s average American student has never before in our nation’s history been so far removed from the origins of our food supply. As a teaching tool, a food dehydrator in the classroom just makes so much sense. It will provide your students with visual and real time, hands-on experience with their raw food. For a child to take a strawberry that was picked from a classroom garden plot, dehydrate it and then have it explode with taste in their mouth is an absolutely priceless teachable moment. Whether it is related to history, science or home economics the practical uses of a classroom food dehydrator can be one of the most effective and versatile teaching tools in your classroom.
A hunter’s best friend may be more than just his trusty hunting dog. Today’s hunter needs an additional best friend in the form of an equally trusty food dehydrator. After a successful hunting excursion a hunter needs an effective and timely way to preserve the fresh meat. To turn this meat into a tasty, seasoned piece of jerky can be the gastronomical highlight of the trip. A food dehydrator at the camp site or lodge will be one of the most heavily used pieces of camping equipment. Speaking of camping, whether you are a weekend camper, hiker or hardcore survivalist, what could be more needed than an inexpensive supply of healthy, finger food and snacks to eat on the trail or at the campsite? A food dehydrator will provide you with that healthy blast of good carbohydrates and proteins that your body will crave during these physically demanding events. These dried snacks will not require any form of preparation or elaborate preservation and will be extremely light weight and easy to pack. The eating of these snacks will not require any additional food preparation. Dehydrated food can literally be a highly nutritional power snacks that can fit in your backpack or pocket.
Food engineers have said that food dehydration may be one of the most effective forms of cost efficient food preservation techniques. Churches with a theological belief system based on end times survival or feeding impoverished world populations have listened very carefully to this research. Amassing a home or community storehouse of well preserved foods with the use of a home food dehydrator is front and center in many families spiritual and family lives. Other missionary families are recognizing the efficiency of a food dehydrator and incorporating it into the feeding of their indigenous followers. These are populations who may be suffering from lack of food due to famine, natural disaster or war torn atrocities. A food dehydrator is being recognized as the catalyst that can not only meet religious requirements but allow one person to effectively feed a multitude with healthy, preserved, nutritious food.
So, here is the question. Do you see yourself in any of these examples? Are you in a family of two or more folks who have any size garden? Are you a teacher or a member of a school system that is searching for creative, cheap and effective teaching tools? Are you an outdoor lover that needs that healthy, finger food snack? Are you the member of a church that requires you to preserve at least a year’s worth of food? Does your church support a missionary in the field who is trying to effectively feed the surrounding people in order to spread the message? If you see yourself in any of these examples then YOU are the one who needs a food dehydrator. From about $50.00 to $250.00 your one time purchase of a modern home food dehydrator will last for years. You food dehydrator will provide you years of service and quickly become that piece of kitchen equipment that you will wonder how you
