20 Dehydrator Recipes - protein rich, kid friendly, sweet, savory 3

I wasn’t sure how much I would use a dehydrator, so I first borrowed one from a friend. It turns out I had that thing running day in and day out, so I quickly purchased my own. I like the Excalibur (buy here) because the large square trays are easy to arrange any shaped food on, the trays remove to culture yogurt, and the temperature dial allows you to choose the temperature you want.

I wanted to share with you 20 different recipes you can do in a dehydrator. I’m sure you can think of others as well!
