Dehydrating fruit, vegetables, dried fish and even dehydrating game meat have all been making a bit of a comeback in recent years. What is food dehydration, and how does it work? Is it safe? And do you really need to buy a food dehydrator?
Why does dehydrating works so well to preserve a large variety of foods? Well, it's because yeast and bacteria need water to grow.By removing all the water from the food, these microorganisms won't thrive. And then your food stays well preserved.
