Selco, I’d be very interested in the recipe/process used to dry fruits and meat in your area of the world… Just because we don’t do it here in the US, does not mean it’s not a good idea…

Actually some of us do dry/dehydrate meat, fruits and vegetables.

The secret is to go big. The larger dehydrator is a key factor, the little ones just don’t have the capacity to deal with a deer/elk or any other large critter.

The new dehydrator I’m building is 30″x30″x 4′ high. With slots for 16 trays, or 4 trays of strips hanging. Just remember to rotate. The last one was left when we moved, no room to bring it.

Here’s an article for thought:

And a three part article that is well worth the read.
