Just a quick update on the drying project. Look how pretty these turned out. I have bcome quite enamored of drying as a food preservation method. I still like to can but some things are just better dried. Here I have tasty mushrooms for soups, pizza, sautees. And these strawberries might just go directly on cereal, although they will rehydrate nicely for mid-winter strawberry shortcake. Tomorrow I'm going to start on apples and peaches.
