Food Dehydrator Plans

Last week, I shared some of the fun I’d been having with my Nesco Food Dehydrator. I’ve been inspired by one of the Dehydrating Facebook groups I’m in.

A lady, in the Dehydrating for Rebels, dehydrated mushrooms, onions, and green peppers. She turned them into a fine powder using a coffee grinder. I thought that was brilliant!

In my previous post, I showed the mushrooms we dehydrated. We don’t have a coffee grinder at the moment, so we tried using our Ninja Express Chop to pulverize them….It didn’t work out so well. The mushrooms are now finely chopped, which worked out great when I made a large pot of Chicken Noodle Soup.

Anyways! I said I was inspired. Here are some of the mix ideas I’m thinking about putting together in the future:

Holy Trinity:

onions, celery, and bell peppers.

Mire Poix:

onions, carrots, and celery.

Flour-Alternative for Gravy:

white potatoes, sweet potatoes, and parsnips.


onion, parsley, garlic, celery, and carrots.

And if all else fails, and I don’t create a single jar for each mix, I do individual jars of each component and make 1:1:1 ratios as needed.

When I made my chicken noodle soup, having powdered celery would have been helpful. If you have any other combinations, please leave them in the comments below.
