    Making your own dehydrated food, particularly fruits, is a great way to make the most of fresh foods when they are in season and inexpensive. For example, tomatoes can vary as much as 500% over the year as they go from feast to famine. By dehydrating your own foods you know exactly what has or hasn't been added to the mix, making them healthier snacks for the whole family. You can use an oven, but a food dehydrator makes the job easier!
