The one thing I've found is you need to be patient about rehydrating them. If you try to rush it, especially larger pieces of meat, you end up with a hard, even crunchy, layer in the middle. Some foods I've found rehydrate very fast; notably chopped onions and peppers, and baby shrimp
Texture when cooked is very similar to cooking with frozen foods. I know I absolutely adore crunching on FD beet slices (cooked, then FD)... it's a wonderful crunchy sweet snack.
So let's see here... Bank of Dad has paid for 5 daughter's weddings and sent 7 kids through college. Don't get me wrong, all of which were great investments, I even have my own personal attoney. But Thank God Bank of Dad is now closed, and Bank of Paw Paw is open for business
I like beet chips but, only have had ones I buy. Have directions to made & plan to try this year to make some. The FD does retain a lot of the color in food. Dehydrators often change that, although taste is still good. Here, only the dehydrator fit the wallet. But I honestly know I would not use a FD enough to justify the cost, so I'm ok with my set up.
Trying to get resp rx. filled for me. MD office requires a telephone appointment with me so they can get their $$$ out of me. Then... rx will be provided. In the mean time, I'm doing homework. One pill is $500+ for a 3 month supply. (out of pocket cost) I have a 500 deductible, which means I must pay that before ANYTHING is covered. Called insurance company back. Rep mentioned a program called "Good RX." Have any of you used this? My research tells me that I can get this med for less than $11/mo. That seems like a no brainer to me.
Insurance rep also told me to demand a pharmacy test claim. Called back local pharmacy (after they quoted the >$500 price, asked for a test claim, and they quoted $15.00 for a 90 day supply. So... either pharmacy or insurance company is out to lunch.
