Thanks Craigslist!

We've been on the lookout for a dehydrator for a few months now. One of Kole's favorite snacks is dried mango, but it is so hard to find without a bunch of added sugar. And when you do find it, it can be pricey. We thought if we found a dehydrator, we could buy a bulk pack of mangoes and voilĂ , Kole's favorite snack!

I noticed an ad on Craigslist for a "like new" dehydrator, but kept forgetting to call. The other day, when I was out, I finally called. The man who owned had used it twice for jerkey and hadn't used it in a number of years. I brought it home, cleaned it up, and plugged it in. It works! And the best part? It was only $10. Score one for being thrifty.

Now we are thinking of all kinds of things to dehydrate. When blueberries are in season and we go to the pick your own farms, we are going to stock up and dehydrate. Apples in the fall. Yum!

What about you?  Do you have something that you love to dehydrate?
