Dehydrating ingredients, it’s something you see a lot on fine dining menus and something mentioned a number of times by Rene Redzepi in his last book.
Dehydrating certain products can completely change their texture, taste and appearance and opens up a whole new way of treating food.
Although it’s certainly not a common device to find in the home, you may be surprised to find that you can pick up a food dehydrator for just over $100.
Williams Sonoma are selling this countertop dehydrator that they say is ideal for dehydrating fruits, vegetables, herbs and even meat - think jerky.
It has a temperature range from 84° to 155°F and can hold up to six large trays, allowing people to dry lots of foods at the same time.
It’s certainly not for beginners but if you’re looking for a new kitchen gadget, this will provide hours of dehydrated fun.
