This thread needs a little bump. And since I was cleaning my basement today, here are some ice cream bars I freeze dryed about a year ago. Do that with your dehydrator! (and no, they have not been in the freezer)

Fun looking. So, I assume those are rehydrated in the freezer?

They don't need to be rehydrated, and are very tasty, but quite different from their prior status! Also, F-D Hostess Twinkies are also quite a treat!

Just eat em crunchy, same great taste. Especially handy take-alongs for campers and hikers. Most freeze dryed fruits are usually eaten dry so are good take-alongs also. The flavor and sweetness of fruit is usually accentuated.

Yep, crunchy and yummy. Eat some of your favorite snacks anytime, anywhere without spoilage.

It was supposed to be a bit of tongue in cheek...About rehydrating....In a freezer....


Sorry, I'll do better next time...:shrug:

They do sound like fun snacks, though.

Just finishing a batch of freeze-dried Hostess Twinkies for G'Kids stocking stuffers, along with previously F-D ice cream sandwiches. The Twinkies come out amazingly good, sort of like giant fortune cookies!

 

Merry Christmas!

Also tried Little Debbie shortbread rollups. Came out good, but the "strawberry" filling squirted out a little bit. Tasted and felt like cotton candy! Easy to scrape off.

Out of the freeze dryer last night, put into jars and vacuum sealed. Apples, bananas, rasberries, apple sauce, pineapple, and 1/2 tray which filled 1 pint of radish microgreens.

Hey Willard, do you know what that "tuft" is at the top of the Ristra? It appears in many pix, see below

Raffia

A long grass used for lots of decorations, grass skirts I think...

It can be tied and shredded like Christmas ribbon.

I've had good luck with freeze-drying peppers (really-really dry!) and pulverizing them into powder that can be dispensed from salt shakers to taste. Below is a picture of a quartet of powders we sent our son who is serving in the USAF in Germany. We've found that about 1/8 tsp of the Ghost is sufficient to nicely season a pint of cottage cheese, and have been surprised how potent the habanero and cayenne powders are. The jalapeñno dust is great on breakfast eggs!
