USED ONCE. Drying food preserves the nutritional value and concentrates flavours. If you've not got enough room in the freezer it's great to dry bargain food that has been bought in abundance. It also reduces the weight of the food so is ideal to use for camping and back-packing trips. Once dried, the food can be stored in jars/containers or plastic bags. MANUAL SUPPLIED.
