I don't have a lot of freezer space so I dehydrate a lot of food. I found that I can even dehydrate home made soups and chili. When rehydrated it tastes great and so much less room. Everything that I dehydrate goes int vacuum sealed bags or jars. Here are several sites that I use for information and recipes. Any meals that I dehydrate are fully cooked and only need to be rehydrated and then heated.
this one gives a chart for times for blanching of fruits and veges
this one I like because I kayak and camp and it gives recipes to make your own foods to pack in.
If there is something specific that I want to dehydrate then I do a google search for dehydrating that specific item and always get a recipe for it.
Get a good dehydrator with a thermostat. Hope this helps - dehyrdating is easy and takes up a lot less room.
