I'm sure it's doable, but do they offer recipes on how to then use them? I 'd want to know how they could be used, and after drying a batch, try the recipes and see how you like them before going on to do more dehydrating. it's interesting what you can dehydrate, but the challenge is finding ways to use the dehydrated foods., particularly foods that we don't ordinarily cook.
one way I can think of is to make Creamed cucumbers. they're ordinarily wilted by the addition of salt anyway, then drained, so that could be done before drying, then rehydrated with hot water, in which some of the salt would be removed, and sour cream and wilted onions added to them after draining.

I got a dehydration book at the library and it mentions that you can dry cucumbers. I am curious because I planted lots of cucumber vines this year. I can't grow the variety usually used for pickles, so this seems like a good way for me to keep them on hand all year. Anybody tried this?
