There is something wonderful about the flavors of wholesome food, no matter how you fix it.
I found this apple peeler/slicer/corer at a tag sale years ago.
Each fall and whenever I get a whim, I pull it out, peel and slice a pile of apples for whatever suits my fancy.
This time, it was dehydrated apples to fill a half gallon jar of
' instant satisfaction,' dried apples.
The dehydrator wasn't quite full enough so I did a tray of banana chips, too. What a treat.
I love this kitchen tool. Just secure it to the counter, add an apple to the apple clamp and turn the pretty red crank handle. Seconds later, the apple is cored, peeled and sliced, ready for whatever you desire.
Pie sounds good to me. Even dehydrated apples can be soaked, re-hydrated and baked into a pie.
Dehydrating apples, what a sweet smell.
While the dehydrator was still sitting out, the boys marinated some sliced venison and made jerky. They sure have that recipe down. Their jerky turned out great and didn't last very long, even tho they made 4 different flavors. Of the Hickory, Hickory Maple, Montreal Steak, and the Lawry's Seasoned, the Hickory Maple is still my favorite.
As long as I'm sharing a few wholesome favorites, how about this dandy dry seasoned 12 lb. chicken~~~my neighbor brings me a chicken each fall and this years bird just fit in my largest roaster. It took just over an hour and a half to cook this beast. Was it dry, No, was it enough,
Absolutely, as the 2-6 of us had 3 meals from this one chicken.
Hmmm, no one has ever said to me, "Look at those thighs!" Of course, that would be a good thing.
No food in this entry was left to the spoils. All portions were consumed by human, bird or animal and thoroughly enjoyed to the fullest.
