Wow, my dehydrator must be old. There's no temp control on it - it just turns on and off.

I've come across a lot of "raw foods" recipes for bars/cookies that are put in a dehydrator, but don't have any recipes of my own to share.

I always just used it to dehydrate veggies in season (or that I got on sale), and then put them in soups and things through the winter months when they were less abundant. I even chopped meat (like turkey or chicken) and dehydrated that. At the time we lived in an earthquake zone, and preparing for times when you had no refrigeration was prevalent.

I haven't used mine again until recently, when I dehydrated some orange peel to grind up and have to add to teas, cookies and whatever.

Greetings! I have recently received a dehydrator. I have used it only twice as I am still tweaking out times and temperatures. The internet is flooded with recipes, but many of them use different times and temps for the same vegetable. For example, I read a recipe for Sweet Potato Chips and it said to use 115* temp. Well, that took almost 24 hours and they still were chewy. I tried another recipe at 135*, but then had them sliced too thick, I think. Any other Sparkers dehydrate and have successful recipes and/or tips? I know I am going to have to invest in mandolin slicer for uniformity.
