Other Uses

While there are countless uses for a good dehydrator, I find one of the best is its ability to dry fresh herbs and spices. I grow many herbs myself and used to hang them out to dry. Now, I can put them in the dehydrator for a couple of hours and they're ready to use! The usual drying temperature for most herbs and spices is under 100 degrees Farenheit.

Food Preparation Average Drying Time Drying Temperature
Basil Rinse in cold water. 2-3 hours 100 degrees
Chili Peppers Rinse and dice. 6-12 hours 100 degrees
Chives Rinse. 2-3 hours 95 degrees
Dill Rinse in cold water. 2-3 hours 100 degrees
Garlic Cut in half lengthwise. 8-12 hours 120 degrees
Mint Rinse in cold water. 2-3 hours 100 degrees
Parsley Rinse. 2-3 hours 100 degrees
