How to Make And Use Your Own High-Performance, Sun-powered Food Dehydrator
Eben Fodor
ISBN: 0-86571-544-0
122 pages.
$ 15.95
Solar food drying is the healthy, sustainable way to preserve high-quality, locally grown foods. Food drying has become very popular in recent years, with electric food dryers now available in almost every department store. But instead of using costly electricity for the job, you can easily build yourself a dehydrator that uses the power of the sun to dry your food. The Solar Food Dryer describes how to use solar energy to preserve your summer’s harvest. With your own solar-powered food dryer, you can quickly and efficiently dry all your extra garden veggies, fruits and herbs to keep their goodness all year long – with free sunshine! Solar food dryers perform amazingly well under a wide range of conditions, working effectively in almost any climate where you can grow fruits and vegetables. As a bonus, solar food drying is a great way to learn about solar energy and to experience the incredible power of the sun – as well as being a great deal of fun! Included are: complete step-by-step plans for building a high-performance, low-cost solar food dryer from readily available materials, solar energy design concepts, food drying tips and recipes, resources, references, solar charts and more. Highly illustrated with both photographs and helpful design and construction plans.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.



  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.
