Dried Vegetables and Dehydrated Vegetables

Click here to view the entire list of Dried Vegetables that we carry!

Dehydrating is a process that allows us to remove all water from the vegetables to ensure that mold or bacteria will not be able to grow or survive, allowing you enjoy the products when you want. This helps to maintain the nutritional value, as well as all vitamins and minerals, to help you maintain that healthy lifestyle. Our Dried Vegetables  allow you to eat fresh vegetables without spending a ton of money.

Our Dried Vegetables will save you time when cooking your favorite meals. Our Dried Vegetables and Dehydrated Vegetables are great as side dishes or add-ins to your favorite recipes. They are easy to prepare and can be ready in minutes! They are great for the adventurous folks who like camping, mountain climbing, backpacking, hiking, ice climbing, canoeing, glacier trekking, cross country skiing and running, cycling, boulder climbing, spelunking, walking trails, horse riding, hunting, fishing, sailing, snowboarding, etc. They make a great light weight easy snack or meal!

We have about 20 Dried Vegetables and Dehydrated Vegetables, everything from spices and powders to whole vegetables. Here is a list of our vegetable products:

Along with that list, we also offer a Variety Sample Pack as well as a Vegetable Soup Mix!

 

General Cooking/Preparations:

Basic preparations vary depending on how you would like to prepare each product. You can eat the vegetables dry, or you can rehydrate them for side dishes or add them to your recipes. Rehydrating varies based on personal preference. In many cases, depending on the amount of one product you put in, it'll depend on how much of another product you add.

A general rule of thumb, start out with the 1:2 rule. The 1:2 ration states that for every 1 part product you put in, you must add 2 parts water. For example: if I have 1 cup of dried peas, I am going to add 2 cups of water in order to rehydrate them. This is a great way to start, because based on the amount of flavor you can always add more product, or strain out some of the water. When you have the amount of water you want, simmer the vegetables for about 10-15 minutes. Also, if you are watching nutritional values, it is good to note that about 1/2 cup of dried vegetables = about 1 cup of hydrated vegetables.

Once you have found a product:water ratio that works best for you, feel free to share it with us on our blog or facebook page!
