Drying

Drying foods is another way to preserve food. It removes moisture from food, which harmful organisms need to grow and thrive. To dry foods, cut vegetables and fruits into small, thin pieces and expose them to warm, dry, moving air to draw 75-95 percent of the moisture out. Dried foods are lightweight, tasty, and nutritious (fantastic for traveling!) but the drying process can be time-consuming without a commercial dehydrator.
