Gourmet spices, herbs, essential oils, potpourri, green tea - bulk and wholesale The Project Gutenberg eBook of Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties, by D. C. Beard. Dehydrating Fruit, vegetables, and beef jerky | My Sister's Kitchen My freezer is full and I’m out of canning jars, so yesterday I hauled out my food dryer/dehydrator. I LOVE dehydrating foods. Many years ago we became the owners of a bulky, awkward Equi-flow food dehydrator. We had no idea at the time what a treasure it was. Every year I dehydrate as many apples as I can bear to cut up. I’ve had no luck dehydrating cranberries or blueberries. I’ve had good success with apples and pears. Green peppers also dry really well. I’ve tried making fruit leather but have never enjoyed the end result much. Our very favorite dehydrated food, however, is beef jerky. There are a lot of “recipes” for drying fruit that call for various things to help the fruit or veggies keep their color.I have never messed with those things. Dehydrators: food dryers are very inexpensive at this point. I mentioned earlier that we were given an Equi-flow dehydrator. DISCLAIMER: all this dehydrating happens in my own kitchen, for my own family. Like this: Like Loading...

Online Post Apocalyptic Fiction What do you do when you've read all of the post apocalyptic fiction you can find? You've read the Deathlands series. You've read I am Legend. The subjects are quite varied, as in published fiction. Sometimes the online stories are not quite as polished as published works would be. Before you dismiss all online writers as wannabes and not worth reading, I would like to point out David Crocker, aka Halffast, who originally wrote the story "Lights Out" on a message board, and was able to make the leap to published book. I've linked only to stories that either the author has decided to make their story available for free, or to stories in the public domain.
