Quick Answers



How can I tell when vegetables have completed drying?

Judging when vegetables are thoroughly dry requires experience. Allow them to cool before testing them for dryness. Dried vegetables should generally be leathery or brittle. GH 1563 "How To Dry Foods At Home" has a chart which lists dryness characteristics for many vegetables.
