I am often asked how I use the freeze-dried foods that we create. So in our freeze-drying journey, I am documenting everything that I create. I love buying in bulk and storing it for later!
The best part about freeze-dried foods is that you can create virtually anything that you can create with fresh (Only exception that I have found that I would miss if I only ate freeze-dried foods is a GREAT BLT. Nope, lettuce, tomatoes, and bacon are all items that can not really be reconstituted to make a GREAT BLT.
So you are not getting a video today, but here is a recipe from what we made. These are sour, so keep that in mind with the completed items. You can always add more sugar to sweeten it up more, however.
