Nothing Good Ever Happened
On An Empty Stomach.
Back in ancient times, true knowledge might never have been attained, let alone contemplated, by Socrates or Plato were it not for the dried food that tempered their interruptive hunger pangs.
The story remained the same, from the time of the early explorers and settlers to the Great Depression and World War II - dried foods kept people going so that history could happen.
And today, dried food makes healthy snacks and adds gourmet touches to uninspired quick-fix meals in the face of rocketing prices and dubious food additives.
Here's the only book the modern cook needs to master the traditions of drying foods. Sounds hard - but it's easy. Simple-to-understand instructions about making dried food at home. Every dehydration method, the variety of fruits, vegetables, meats and nuts that dry to the best results, as well as how to use dried foods to add a splash of excitement to homecooking, are explained in detail. Over 100 easy-to-make recipes utilize dried foods to create trail mixes, desserts, main courses, fruit roll-ups and glaces, meat jerkies, baby food and dozens of other dishes from around the world - all with minimal fuss! When you dry seasonal fruuits, vegetables and herbs, as well as make your own jerky, you'll save on your household food budget while providing healthful sugarless meals and snacks for your family. More energy-, time-, and space-efficient than canning or freezing - the best thing about drying is that it creates possibilities for cooking you've never had before, while letting you preserve all the foods you love.
