I've never made tofu jerky before so I don't know how the recipe tastes.

Have you since tried this recipe? If not, have you found one that you particularly like? I was a huge beef jerky lover pre-veg and I would like nothing more than to be able to make a tofu version.

Beachbnny Me too! I like mine though just cause if I'm doing something small I don't feel like I'm wasting space. I'd like to have one of each I have so little room in my kitchen that it's actually upstairs in my office right now (sitting next to me right here). It's a big kitchen but with not enough counter and cupboard space.

jenna I have the 4-tray one. I knew someone that had three of the 9-tray ones. I'd love to upgrade to a 9-tray someday.

Beachbnny This is the one I have:

I have the 5 "drawer" kind. If you take out the drawers there a lot of room!

jenna Oh, no. The raw 'bread' usually isn't anymore than 1" thick, mostly thinner. It makes a good sandwich, though!
01-31-2008 09:03 AM
Beachbnny I ues it mostly for drying herbs that I have an abundance of from the summer, dried fruits for trail mix type stuff, and it's the perfect place to let bread rise. I haven't used it as much as I'd like but that's my fault. I love it in the summer for hiking and camping trips and just generally drying things from the garden. I think it's very economical. HTH!

The Muse I've been thinking about getting one, but don't know how often I'd use it.



Does anyone have a link to some recipes for tofu jerkey or whatever else you make with one of these?
01-31-2008 08:48 AM
jenna I've made raw sweet potato chips. You gotta slice'em really, really thin. I've never done the regular potatoes, though.
01-31-2008 08:45 AM
Vrindavan1 is that we can put raw potatoes and raw sweet potatoes to dehydrator as well, and it will cooked them and make them ready to eat ?
01-31-2008 08:41 AM
jenna Excalibur would be the way to go, personally. You can get them used/refurbished/whatever.



It can make good food just as long as you're not stuffing yourself full of dried fruit all the time. Sugar sugar sugar.



They're pretty economical to run. I used to leave mine on all the time as I always had something going - crackers, chips, warming up raw pasta dishes, etc.
01-31-2008 08:41 AM
vigilant20 Oh great timing. I'm currently keeping an eye out for one. I grow lots of herbs I'd like to dry and am really interested in making things like tofu jerky.
