Preserving Food Without Freezing or Canning: Easy-to-Make Drying Trays

Ever want to dry your own food, but didn’t want to buy a dehydrator? How about simple, DIY food trays?

Food is usually dried on a flat surface, such as a tray or screen, using a natural or artificial heat source. Trays should be placed in a dry, well-ventilated spot, generally out of the direct sun, or in specially designed solar dryers.

Drying trays are easy to make, and our friends from Centre Terre Vivante have two simple designs anyone can buildGet the Design »»


Wild Flavors: Choen’s Autumn Olive Fruit Leather

Autumn olive was first cultivated in United States in the 1800s, but don’t let the name mislead you. These shrubs grow berries, not olives, but their leaves resemble olive leaves. The berries appear in midfall and remain for six to eight weeks, offering a complex mix of tart and sweet flavors, intensifying in sweetness steadily from October through November.

Chef and author Didi Emmons explains how to make fruit leather from this foraged fruit. Get the Recipe »»
