Dehydrating Frozen Vegetables

I'm always looking for ways to preserve food and save money. I like to save the freezer space for items that can't be preserved to be shelf stable.

                            I picked up a bag of frozen peas and diced carrots


                                   Placed them directly from the bag onto the dehydrator.

                                 A few hours later, I have dehydrated peas and carrots.

                                      I was so excited I tried it with a bag of mixed vegetables.

                                               Four cups of frozen vegetables.

A few hours on the dehydrator....
I am left with 1 cup of dehydrated mixed vegetables.

I sealed them with my Food Saver and now they can sit on the shelf.

To reconstitute, add enough warm water to cover desired amount of vegetables. After a few minutes vegetables plumb back to normal and are ready to be used in your meals.
