Do you dehydrate green beans?
Yes ma'a'm, I do. Today I packed them in 8 oz jelly jars and used the vacuum sealer to pull a seal on the jars. First time I've done it that way - so we'll see how it works. I guess I could've just vacuumed 'em in a bag, but thought I'd try the jars. I'll generally throw them in a stew or soup when I dehydrate 'em and they cook up real nice.

Well, how do you eat the turnips when fresh? Canned is just precooked....mostly. Unless you slice fresh into salad, etc.

I haven't had much luck storing them. in the fridge or out I seem to only get a few days to a week before they get soft and wrinkled
