5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference, Sept. 16 2001

This review is from: How To Dry Foods (Paperback)
This is a fantastic reference for drying food.
The author takes the time to explain in detail the different methods of preparing food for dehydrating food. She discusses sulfiting, steaming, no prep. etc. The author also explains the various methods of drying food (oven, dehydrator etc.) The pictures only enhance the text. Further more, the author provides several charts (one for fruit, one for vegies, one for meat, one for herbs) regarding how well certain foods dry, how long each food will save when dried. I particularly liked the recipes that used dried foods.
This is a great book to have if you are interested in drying foods. I constantly refer to this book every time I dry the extra food we have on hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stands the test of time but shy on pix, Oct. 27 2009

This review is from: How to Dry Foods (Paperback)
I bought a 20-year old dehydrator and Deanna's book (publ. 1979) came with it. So why did I need another? Because it was so well-used that it was falling apart and no amount of tape could save it. Ironically, I read the reviews on her book and, based on them, I ordered it, not realizing I had the earlier version so it appears it is still a definitive guide on dehydrating. The info has been updated to reflect subtle changes in the last 30 years and now includes websites. The only thing missing are the dozens of colour pictures from the earlier version -- so I guess I'll be keeping it anyway.
