These are our epic carrots. We grew yellow carrots this year. Decided to shred some & dehydrate 'em.
The method: wash 'em, julienne them (thank you, Cuisinart!), blanch 'em (boil 'em for 2 minutes), spread 'em on paper towel in the dehydrator.
Note: I varied the paper towels: one had a vent hole in the middle; the next had vent space around the paper towel.
I grew a bunch of purple potatoes this year. They are making pretty interesting shreddies.
LESSON LEARNED: NEVER USE PAPER TOWELS FOR POTATOES; CAN'T SEPARATE THEM WHEN THEY'RE DRY.
I did some sweet potatoes at the same time.
These are going to make some awfully good soup!
