for a few minutes. For anyone who is interested, 50 lbs. of onions, when chopped into about half inch pieces, dehydrates down to 12 quarts. I should be good for a while on onions!
This morning I thawed out 8 lbs. of blueberries. I would rather have fresh wild blueberries, but that's not going to happen, so I will settle for frozen. They are packed into 32 half pint jars and are sitting on my kitchen table for a couple more hours, just to make sure they are completely thawed. I'll cover them with a thin sugar-water syrup and run them through my water bath canner this evening. This is an experiment, so I'll open a jar in a couple of days and see how they turned out. I have canned blueberries that I picked and froze myself, but have never used store-bought berries like this before. I have another 8 lbs. in the freezer and I'm thinking maybe a couple batches of blueberry jam.
Another 6 lbs. of frozen hash browns are in the dehydrators now and should be dry by late evening. They dry quicker than do the onions. By tomorrow evening all 24 lbs. of potatoes will be dehydrated, in jars and on my shelves.
And on Sunday, I'm going to do
