Why are we waiting ...

Slowly dehydrating. So, I bought a dehydrator. Not your $79 round Kenbrook model, I went all out, lentil-eater-mental and bought an Excalibur (they're over $300 eek). It's part of my 'take your lunch to work' ethos - and I'm trying to stick to it. 

I have been buying fruit leather to snack on, but it's so expensive, especially the stuff that's 100% fruit. The day my new gadget arrived I took myself off to the fruit barn and purchased a crap-load of cheap fruit to make into leather and also to dry. 

So far so good ... mango is my favourite, but peeling and slicing it is a bitch! I might try berries next as they shrivel up nice and sweet and chewy.


Apples and a strawberry and yoghurt leather...


the apples after drying and some banana...

I've had an Excalibur dehydrator on my wish list for a while now. Maybe this Christmas will be the one.
You'll have to share more of the delicious results.
