Last weekend was an incredible dive! I received an amazing dehydrator for Christmas and have been dehydrating lots of dumpster goods for snacks, or to preserve for later. Even with all the food I give away, donate, and share, I can never eat all of my food and my compost is always overflowing. This past weekend we dove tons of dehydratable, delish, fruits to snack on, and I have been drying fruits right and left! We dove:
If I didnt dumpster dive? I would never have anything to dehydrate, the device would be useless to me, and I would probably be attempting to sell it somewhere. But thanks to a lot of waste, I am able to preserve and create nourishment for myself and others, from garbage. The words trash and garbage have completely different definitions to me now, and my dehydrator is one of my most used appliances, coming in behind the coffeemaker, and microwave. If you count the amount of hours that I use it, or how much work it does for me, its definately number one no question. I am munching on dehydrated watermelon as we speak, and who would have thought it would be better than jolly rancherS? WAY BETTER. Dont even get me started on how I feel about pineapple chips.
