Chili Seasoning Dry Mix

I do not add the salt or cayenne...The user can add their won to taste ! :}

Making your own mixes is a natural step for those of us who can and preserve our own foods. But unlike canning or freezing, which require special equipment such as canners or freezers, these recipes require very little and can be stored anywhere.

This one is for a wonderful chili seasoning mix. There is no need to buy those expensive packets from the store with fillers and ingredients you can't even pronounce when you can make your own.

Easy to Make Chili Season Mix

Ingredients:

4 Tablespoons chili powder
2 Tablespoons fine sea salt
2 Tablespoons paprika
4 Tablespoons onion flakes or granulated or 2 teaspoons onion powder
4 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons Oregano
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon cayenne

Directions:

Mix dry ingredients together thoroughly. Store in a airtight container and store in a cool dark place.

Add 1 - 2 tablespoons of seasoning to a pound of hamburger to suit your tastes. You can add more or less cayenne pepper depending on how spicy you like your chili.

** I use 1/4 cup per lb of ground meat !

How to Make Homemade Instant Mashed Potatoes

blog.welikemakingourownstuff.com/201
2/
05/dehydrating-potatoes.html

Dehydrated Potato Granules


1. Peel and rinse the potatoes.
The amount of potatoes required will depend on how many trays you are going to be using. If you are using a dehydrator, I found that about 4 potatoes per fruit leather tray worked well.
2. Quarter and boil the potatoes.
Cut each potato into 4 pieces and place the pieces in a pot. Add water to just cover the potatoes, and bring to a boil. Cover the pot, reduce heat to low, and allow the potatoes to simmer until tender--approximately 20 minutes.
3. Drain potatoes.
Once the potatoes are tender, drain in a colander and allow them to dry somewhat.
4. Mash the potatoes.
Return the potatoes to the pot, and mash them well. Do not add anything to them--we are mashing only plain potatoes. Mash the potatoes until they are smooth and lump-free.
5. Dehydrate the potatoes.
If you are using a food dehydrator, spread the mashed potatoes in a fruit leather tray. Dehydrate at 130 degrees F until dry (I did mine overnight, and they were done by morning).
If you are drying in an oven, lightly grease a jellyroll pan, and spread the mashed potatoes in the pan. Be careful you don't layer it in too thickly, or it will take forever to dry out--try not to go thicker than 1/4". Put your oven on its lowest temperature, and leave the potatoes to dehydrate until they are dry all the way through. They are dehydrated when you can bend the potatoes and a piece snaps off.
6. Grind the dried potatoes.
Remove the dried potatoes from the fruit leather tray or jellyroll pan and break the sheet of potatoes into chunks. Place a few chunks at a time in your blender, and pulse, breaking up the chunks into small granules. It is important that your potatoes are dried out all the way, because if they are not, they wont break apart like they should in the blender (and there is danger of spoilage during storage).
7. Store the granules.
Once you have blended all your potato chunks into granules, you can store them. Glass jars work well for this, but you can also use plastic containers or Ziploc bags. Store the granules in a cool, dark place.
8. To rehydrate the potatoes:

For 4 Servings:

Bring 1 cup water or milk (or a combination of the two), 1 tablespoon butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil. Add 1/2 cup potato granules, stir, cover, and remove from heat. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, or until the granules have softened. Whip the potatoes with a fork, whisk, or beaters, adding additional milk and butter if desired.

For thicker potatoes, decrease liquids, for thinner, increase liquids.

Of course, you can also just rehydrate the potatoes with boiling water and skip the salt, milk, and butter if you'd like them plain.

Dehydrated potatoes are great for camping and those who travel a lot. They are also nice to have around as an "emergency" food, in the case of natural disaster or other emergency. Dehydrated potatoes are also a handy "convenience" food to have around for when you need to throw together a quick, fuss-free dinner.

And here's a Troubleshooting link !!! Very Helpful !

Zucchini Chips

recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=2185737&utm_source=spR>arkpeople&utm_medium=email&u
tm
_campaign=recipe-of-the-day


Perfect snack for school lunches, after school or work snacks, or as a side dish with meals.



Minutes to Prepare: 5

Minutes to Cook: 10

Number of Servings: 4



Ingredients

1 medium zucchini (about 10 ounces)
Pinch salt
Pinch black pepper
Parchment paper




Tips


I prefer free flowing salt for this recipe since a little will go a long way! Feel free to change up or add additional spices or seasonings. Cayenne pepper, dried thyme, or rosemary will all work well with these chips.



Directions

Cut the unpeeled zucchini into 1/16 inch slices using a knife, the slicing blade of a food processor, or a mandoline.
Place cut slices onto paper towels, and pat them dry.

MICROWAVE INSTRUCTIONS: (UPDATED)
Place a sheet of parchment paper atop a microwave-safe plate.
Mist the zucchini slices with cooking spray, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place each slice on the plate, being careful not to overlap the slices.
Microwave on high for up to six minutes, let rest for one minute, then cook another minute. You want to let the chips rest when they appear to be drying out but are not yet browned.
Remove any chips that have light brown spots and the cook remaining chips, if any, for one more minute. Repeat with the remaining slices using the same parchment. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

OVEN INSTRUCTIONS:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the zucchini atop the parchment in a single layer, then mist with cooking spray.
Bake for 10 minutes, flip, then bake for another 10 minutes, or until the chips have reached the desired crispiness.
For crispier chips, use a wire rack instead of parchment.

Serving Size: Makes 4 servings, approximately 20 chips per serving.

What to Do with All of Your Pumpkins ! Make Powder

Unbelievable !!! Look how Great this works !!!
Thank You Mrs. Volfie !
www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeIboz_H6Mk

1/4 cup dry to 1 cup hot water = 1 cup puree

When I did my pumpkin powder, after roasting and cooling and scooping, I let the scooped pulp sit a bit and then drained off much of the water, then ran it thru my food processor. I spread mine a bit to thin so it dried like glass sheets.
Next time I will spread it thicker.
I read on a blog to freeze the dried pumpkin so when you grind it, it's like glass and will grind to a fine powder.
Do try it and let me know how it works for you...It made a Great Pie for me !!!!

Cream of Whatever Soup Mix

From VintageJen88

you can make a large batch and store(or if you want to do the math, make just a single serving). This particular recipe is from justapinch.com but it's all over the internet if you google "cream of whatever."

2 cups of instant powdered milk
3/4 cup cornstarch (or ClearJel will work)
1/4 cup chicken bouillon granules
2 tablespoons dry onion flakes
1 teaspoon each basil and garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Mix 1/3 cup of the mix with 1 1/4 cup cool water. Whisk together, add stir-in ingredients now such as the dehydrated broccoli and cheese powder or maybe some dried mushrooms. Bring to a boil and stir for 1 minute then remove from heat. I'd let it sit for at least 5 minutes after that to continue thickening and re hydrating the stir-ins.

Dehydrating Broccoli

Broccoli is very easy to dehydrate if you start with frozen chopped broccoli. Just spread partially thawed chopped broccoli on dehydrator trays that have first been lined with non-stick dehydrator sheets or parchment paper. That keeps the dried broccoli from slipping through the holes in the mesh. Here are the instructions. http://www.simplyprepared.com/dehydrating_
frozen_vegetables.htm One pound of frozen chopped broccoli yields 1 cup dried broccoli.

Here is an easy recipe to use it in.

CHICKEN BROCCOLI RICE CASSEROLE (Pantry Cooking with Home Preserved Foods)

1 pint chicken, drained and shredded, reserving the broth
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed Cheddar cheese soup
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
1 cup long grain white rice, cooked (3 cups cooked rice)
1 cup dehydrated chopped broccoli
Seasoned bread crumbs

Add water to the reserved broth to equal 1 cup. In a large bowl, whisk together soup, milk and broth water. Add shredded chicken, cooked rice and dehydrated broccoli. Combine well. Pour into a greased 2-quart baking dish. Top with seasoned bread crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serves 6.

DIY Dishwasher Detergent Cubes
by Rachel Paxton

Last year I made homemade dishwasher detergent for the first time. I have been using it ever since. I didn't think the recipe could be improved on, until I found the idea for these DIY dishwasher detergent cubes.



The recipe for these is basically the same as the dishwasher detergent I posted earlier. The difference is the addition of lemon juice, which is used to bind the powders together so that you can shape them in the form of cubes.

DYI dishwasher detergentIngredients:

2 c. Borax
2 c. Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
1 c kosher salt or Epsom salt
Bottled lemon juice
Ice cube trays

In the previous article, Lemi Shine was used in the place of lemon juice. The Lemi Shine and lemon juice both provide needed citric acid to the recipe. People who have really hard water love Lemi Shine. It does a great job of naturally reducing water spots and cloudiness on glassware. If your water isn't really hard, then you might find the lemon juice works just as well. So far the lemon juice is working great for me.

Mix the Borax, washing soda (not baking soda), and salt. I used Epsom salt for this recipe. Next pour in a little lemon juice and stir. Keep adding lemon juice until the dry mixture clumps together. You want the mixture to be moist but not soggy wet.

Press the mixture into the ice cube trays. You might want to measure the height of your ice cube trays and the height of the dishwasher detergent compartment in your dishwasher. The cubes may be too tall to fit in your dishwasher detergent compartment. If it is too tall, just fill the ice cube trays half full so that they will fit in your dishwasher.

This recipe will fill approximately four ice cube trays. Press the mixture until it is compact. Place the trays in a warm place to dry. This is great to do during the hot summer months. In our 100 plus degree weather mine dried on the back patio in less than 24 hours.

After the cubes have dried, pop them out of the ice cube trays and store them in an air tight container.

You might wonder if these work better than the previous recipe. Actually they work about the same, and I like both. These are a little more effort to make, but a lot of people have problems with the powder in the first recipe hardening in the container, making it hard to get out. These cubes eliminate that problem, you just take out a cube and it is ready to use.

And don't forget to use white vinegar as a rinse aid in your Jet Dry compartment. This will also help cut down on hard water spots and keep both your dishes and your dishwasher sparkling clean.

Preserving Carrots: Powder and Puree From Annie's Place

Carrots are my next victim in the puree and powder obsession. Our local farm usually carries these in the fall and I love to stock up. Two years ago I bottled a ton a carrots and no one was eating them so I had to employ my sneaky skills of pureeing and powdering. I drained the water, pureed the carrots, froze half of them in food cubes and dehydrated the rest. I liked it so much that I no longer bother with bottled carrots and go straight to the puree and powder.

TOMATO CHIPS

All you’re gonna need (besides a dehydrator) is Roma tomatoes (others would work also, but smaller ones are better), sea salt or kosher salt (something coarse), and dried basil.

Slice your tomatoes, with the skin on, about 1/4 inch thick.

Arrange slices on a dehydrator tray.

Sprinkle them with sea salt or kosher salt (You want a coarser salt) and a bit of dried basil.

Go easy on the salt because whatever you add will taste like double once the chips are dried.

Set dehydrator to vegetable temperature, around 135 degrees, and dry until crispy, anywhere from 8-12 hours.

Store in airtight container and enjoy!!!

Get ready to make some more though, because these won’t last long.

Bouillon Cubes

Ok, my kitchen turned into my science lab again yesterday.
I was looking for how to make bouillon cubes and found a recipe. The only problem is it has salt in them....
You mix
5 Parts Salt

3 parts Wild Food (Stinging Nettles in this case) or you can use other vegetables such as celery, carrots, parsley, etc...

1 Part Onion Powder

1 Part Garlic Powder

1 Part Italian Herbs

and enough bullion to make a thick paste.

Form your cubes and then dry them in your dehydrator.
Here's the link for the process...and complete recipe.
www.urbanoutdoorskills.com/bouillon-
cu
bes.html

From a gallon of broth, I got 1 cup of thick gel.
Not sure it I will make them with this recipe...I'm still looking for something with no salt or less salt.
(I know I can make cubes without salt and freeze them) I was just trying to avoid the freezing part.

Tomato Powder !

Go Figure...Why didn't I think of that ???!!!!
Instead of Grinding your dehydrated tomatoes, puree them first, then dry and grind !
You will get a much finer tomato powder...

Dehydrating Potatoes

Just wash your potatoes really well, then peel or don't peel...
Always wash the potatoes really well before peeling so the bacteria from on the skins won't get onto the potatoes...
Slice 1/4" thick ...uniform slices helps them all to dry consistently...
Bring a large pot of water to a boil...Add potatoes and boil for 7-8 minutes...
This helps to stop the oxidation and your slices won't turn dark.
Take out of water and immediately plunge them into COLD water...I fill my sink with cold tap water...this stops the cooking action...
When the slices are cold, take out of the water and lay on a clean dish towel and pat dry with a paper towel or another towel...
Place slices on your dehydrator shelves that have been sprayed with Pam...So not overlap.
If your dehydrator has a temperature dial, set to 135 or so and dry for 14-16 hours or until they are crispy...If not, then just turn on your dehydrator and keep an eye on them...Do not let them turn golden...
Take out of dehydrator and let cool to room temp and then store in an air tight container.
Have fun...

I bought a package of Sun Dried Tomatoes a couple of weeks ago -- first time ever. Did I ever gulp at the price, but needed them for a recipe. Yes, doing my own will save a TON of money.

Patti, just reading your home made Onion Soup powder and wondering what job does the expresso do? I don't drink tea or coffee of any kind, not even in baking or cooking....
The rest of the recipe sounds great.

Also, thanks for the dried Garlic powder and the Sun Dried Tomatoes. These sound fabulous.... I will have to give them a try....

Dried Green Beans...

Wash fresh beans and cut into 1" pcs...
Steam blanch for 10 minutes stiring occasionally so they all get steamed. Don't make them to deep.
OR
Boil Blanch for 2 minutes...
Immediately, take out of steam basket and put on dehydrator shelves. (I put mine on a towel and blotted them to absorb some of the moisture first)
Dry for 4-12 hrs till they are brittle and completely dried.
Store in a well sealed jar or container in your pantry.
No need to freeze.

How to Make Raw Garlic Powder

I got this idea from my beautiful cousin, a fellow DIYer from Cali. When I found out she made her own garlic powder, I knew I had to find out how! A few months ago, she had a 3-hour layover in Seattle, and we hadn’t seen each other in years. It was a no-brainer – we simply had to get together! So my daughter and I drove down to the airport meet her, and we took her out to dinner. We had a great time together over some very delicious lamb, and she revealed how easy it is to make your own garlic powder.

As soon as my store-bought garlic powder ran out, I tried my hand at it with a modification or two to fit my style. I always change things up to fit my style, don’t you? ;)

She has given me permission to share it with you all! Thank you, dear Cousin!



Raw Garlic Powder

Gather supplies:

• One head of garlic
• Garlic press
• Knife
• Dehydrator tray lined with wax paper or equivalent

Break apart your head of garlic into individual cloves. Cut off the ends and peel, if needed. (I don’t always peel my garlic when using a press.)



Press through garlic press directly onto the lined dehydrator tray. If you don’t have a garlic press, slice the garlic very thinly.



Spread pressed or sliced garlic thinly on tray and dehydrate on low for 12 – 24 hours. I set my Excalibur to 95 degrees. Enjoy the garlic smell wafting through your house!

You can also use an oven set on the lowest setting. This does not guarantee that the finished product will still be raw as the lowest setting on most modern ovens is 170 degrees. If desired, you can leave the oven door open to lower the temperature. Keep in mind, the garlic might be dried sooner than 12 hours.



Put dried garlic “chips” in blender or coffee grinder and grind to powder. Store in appropriate container.



I promise you, this will be the best garlic powder you have ever tasted! It is very strong and will last much longer than your store-bought garlic powder because you won’t use as much. Warning! You may need to adjust your recipes to taste unless you really like garlic.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

UPDATE !!!! 8-4-2014

Ok...Now that I have done this numerous times...Here are a few short cuts that I found out helps cut your time...
1. Get a pot of boiling water going on your stove. Clean off the outside paper of the heads and separate the cloves. Cut the tip off each clove and when all cut, plop them in the boiling water for about 30 seconds...NO LONGER....
Then take out of boiling water and drop into very cold water to stop the cooking action. I fill my sink as our well water is Very Cold !!!
When cool, take out of cold water and put on a towel or put into a colander to drain.
The skins will slip right off !!!!
2. After all of the cloves are de-skinned, put in a food processor and process until they are finely minced...NOT Mush ! No need to kill your hands with the garlic press !
Spread out in your dehydrator. I use window screening cut to fit the trays...mine didn't come with the tray liners.
3. Do NOT touch the garlic in the dehydrator until it is almost done. It sticks to the liners and gets in the holes if you try to spread it around. If you wait, it will peel off easier.
4. When Done, I take the liner sheets over a cookie sheet and rub the liner together to help get the stuck pieces off. Then off to the coffee grinder and give it a whirl !!!
5. You can grind into powder or to a mince grind...which ever you like !

Make Zucchini Chips With A Food Dehydrator.
Zucchini Chips Are A Great Alternative To Potato Chips .


Are you looking for a healthier alternative to fried potato chips?
Would you like to eat a chip that does not have excess oils, excess salt and unhealthy fats?
If so, the answer lies with a food dehydrator and raw zucchini.
Zucchini chips are a healthy, low fat, non-fried vegetable chip alternative to standard potato chips.


Preparation:

1. Slice unpeeled zucchini into slices about 1/4 inch thick

2. Blend 2 tomatoes, chopped fine and some minced garlic in a bowl.

3. Add salt and pepper to taste.

4. Now add a small amount of olive oil to the mixture.

5. Coat both sides of the zucchini slices in the tomato/garlic mixture.

6. Place the zucchini slices on the dehydrator’s drying trays

Dry the zucchini slices for 12 hours or until the slices are crisp, showing no signs of moisture within the slice. Break a zucchini chip open to test the inside of the slice.

Enjoy your healthy zucchini chips.

As an alternative, I have also used yellow squash and kale.

This is so yummy. Hope you like it.

Here is how to Dehydrate potatoes.
Yes, you have to steam blance or boil them...(I steam blance)
I'm still looking for that recipe but this may get you going...

Instructions
1 Wash potatoes, removing any spoiled areas. Skins can be removed or left on for vitamins.

2 Bring a large kettle of water to a boil. Add salt to taste.

3 Slice potatoes into 1/8-inch-thick rounds.

4 Place potato slices in a vegetable basket and dip into boiling salt water.

5 Wait for water to return to a boil.

6 Boil potatoes for 6 to 8 minutes.

7 Remove potatoes from boiling water and place basket of potatoes in ice water for 15 minutes.

8 Spread blanched potatoes in a single layer between paper towels and blot dry.

9 To dry in conventional oven, coat cookie sheets with vegetable-oil spray.

10 Spread blanched potato slices on sheets in a single layer.

11 Place in oven on lowest setting, around 170 degrees F.

12 Keep oven door cracked for air circulation and for moisture to escape.

13 Turn slices over after 1 hour.

14 Continue turning every 30 minutes until potatoes are brittle and translucent, but not pliable.

15 To dry in dehydrator, place potato slices on racks coated lightly with vegetable-oil spray. Place slices in a single layer and not touching each other.

16 Follow dehydrator instructions on settings and times.

17 Let potatoes cool; store in a glass jar or large plastic bag.

Tips & Warnings

When dry, potatoes will be a pale white color with a tinge of yellow.

Some potatoes dry faster than others, so check every 15 to 30 minutes for dried slices and remove them.

Rehydrate potatoes by pouring boiling water over them and letting them sit for at least an hour.

Avoid letting slices become brownish in color when drying. This means they are overcooked and could have a bad taste.

I used some dehydrated celery for a chicken stew this week. 1 cup of celery made about 4 cups reconstituted...... I did this outside of the stew because I was not sure how much water I needed and good thing as I originally used 1:3 ration but found that was not nearly enough water.

Potatoes are on sale today so I want to dehydrate them. My sister says I have to blanch them. Anyone else tried potatoes? Any other tips and hints ou can pass along?

When I dry cherries and apples, I get them going along and then turn the dehydrator off and on. Otherwise, they are crispy on the outside and undone on the inside. Leaving them alone overnight in the dehydrator evens the moisture out better, and then I can tell if I need more time.

Hi Linds, Yes, fruit should not be brittle but veggies must be or they will mold.
I've dried mushrooms, corn, green beans, zucchini and carrots.
They rehydrate very well but must be brittle.

I have a dehydrator, but so far, I have only used it for herbs and fruit. I dried apples and cherries in it, and found that you need to make sure not too over dry them, or they become brittle. They can be re-hydrated, and used in recipes, but are not so nice to eat out of hand, when they get too dry... It works wonderfully for the herbs, and they get dry much quicker, than when I use the oven method.

Gosh, Probably but I'm not sure of the adjustments...
Maybe Google " dry beans in the oven recipe" and see what comes up.
