Today I want to show you how to save storage space and to offer you an easy way to store your veggies without having to freeze or can them.
First peel and slice your carrots into even quarters.
You want the pieces to be as even as possible for the best possible drying possibilities.
Blanche the carrots in boiling water for 4-5 minutes.
After blanching, place the carrots in a container of cold water to stop the cooking procedure.
Drain and place evenly on the dehydrator trays (All my carrots filled 3 trays)
Dry at 50°C for approximately 4-5 hours, or until the carrots are shriveled and dry.
They should look like this when done.
The carrots now fill less than a quarter of the same space, allowing me to put about 10 carrots into this jar :)
This jar holds roughly 10 large carrots
I keep my carrots in a handy jar to add to all my curries, stews and soups.
Before I add them back into my meals I leave the carrots in a bowl covered with water for a couple of hours before I need to use them.
They will taste the same as fresh carrots if done this way.
Do join us next week for another dehydrator recipe :)
We would love to hear from you,
Have a super weekend.
