  • 1. Food Preservation – Cucumbers
    I always get more cucumbers than I know what to do with during the growing season. I don’t really like to make home-made pickles, but I found another way to preserve my cucumbers that is quite easy and tasty. I dehydrate them.
    Cucumbers dry very well, but they don’t hold up when you rehydrate them, so I like to make Dried Cucumber Dill Chips. Small cucumbers dry the best (6” long) and they should not be stored any longer than 2 weeks in the refrigerator before drying.
    Dehydrated Cucumber Dill Chips
    4 cucumbers – washed and sliced into ¼ inch slices
    Stir Together:
    4 TB fresh dill weed
    2 TB lemon juice
    1/3 cup filtered water
    1 tsp real salt
    dash of cayenne pepper
    Add sliced cucumbers to dressing. Cover and chill overnight. After cucumbers are chilled, drain well and place on dehydrator trays. Dry at 130-135 F until crisp. Store chips in freezer in increase shelf life.
