Dehydrating Vegetables

I had a lot of beans this year.  Sometimes when you can or freeze beans, they get floppy - well, mine do anyway.  I did freeze several batches, in case these didn't turn out.  I think I like dehydrating them better.  We picked, washed and broke them into small pieces, put them on the trays and let them dry overnight.  Easy!  They taste really "beany."  

This worked so well, that I thought I would do the same with the shelled beans.  

Aren't they pretty!  Shell the beans put in the dehydrator over night.  Make sure to put the shells/pods in the compost pile....

I LOVE how they all look in my antique jars!

Then I decided to do carrots and peppers too....

I plan to work my way through the garden dehydrating....maybe mixing the veggies together to make a soup mix.  If you haven't dehydrated, give it a try, it is super easy.
