When my kids were still at home I used to have an Excalibur dehydrator, and I used it to make a lot of dried fruits, and fruit straps.
Also used it to make flax, and other, gluten-free crackers.
I no longer have the machine though, and don't miss it.

I use my dehydrator when I get a surplus of items from my garden, dried hot peppers are easy to store and add a kick to chili and other dishes. Dried tomatoes are great with eggs. I've dried mangos in the past, but it was a lot of work. I try to go to the Farmer's Market when fruits are in season so that I can get a large quantity to dry. I store the dried fruit in old oatmeal boxes to stay fresh. Home dried fruit is great for home made granola.

I'm ashamed to say that I bought a dehydrator some time back that I still haven't gotten out of the box. My two sons and husband begged me to buy it, because a good friend of ours has been tantilizing us with wonderful homemade dehydrated snacks. She dries all kinds of seasonal fruits and veggies, seasoned with herbs, sometimes sauces, frequently with alcohol. Brandy cherries were to die for!

I've looked a little bit online, but mostly I've found suggestions for various types of jerky.

Any suggestions? -- Claudia
