Do you remember the Dehydrator??

Well I promised a long time ago...back here in fact that I would share a few things that I tried drying out.

Anyway going through my camera memory card I found a few random photos so thought now was as good a time as any to share them with you!!

Dehydrated Tomatoes

So not a huge selection of pictures and only a fraction of what I did. Since the winter arrived I haven't really used the dehydrator but it will be going full force again once the allotment gets into full swing again.  The onions and tomatoes I ground to a powder for convenient cooking once they were dried and the fruits became wonderful fruit leathers to chew on. I also dried lots of apples and they were loved by all...even Trojan who won't eat fresh apple pieces!!
 
I did have what I would consider one failure...well it wasn't a failure exactly as the dehydration
process worked fine....it was just the flavour that was left at the end of it...I don't even really know
how to describe apart from the fact that it tasted absolutely foul!! Needless to say I won't ever try
dehydrating COURGETTES again...lol!!

Solar Eclipse, 20/03/2015

So last week we were very fortunate to have a nice day and be in a good position in Lincolnshire of which to view it.

I didn't spend any money on special glasses or anything but I did go out armed with my camera and took rather a LOT of photos...some I am really pleased with....a lot aren't so great but I thought I would share them with you all anyway!!



So that's all you're getting for today...things are pretty hectic at the moment and I haven't done any work down the allotment yet and I also haven't had chance to keep caught up with all your blogs but hopefully with Easter vacation next week I will find a little more time to get caught up with all of you and the allotment too!!
