I finally went to the farmer's market to see what I could find to dehydrate. I have always dehydrated small volumes. Boy did I get some bargains. I ask if they had some cases that they could reduce. He said we do and let me show you. I bought a case of granny smith apples for $8.00, a case of bartlett pears for $8.00, a case of red and yellow bell peppers for $5.00, a mixed case of yellow squash, purple cabbage and acorn squash for $5.00, and a mixed case of zucchini, red and green apples, limes and lemons (the lemons I had removed from the box) for $8.00. I will be dehydrating for days.
Fabulous bargains and what great variety! Was this at the Atlanta State Mkt. in Forrest Park or a local one? Did I understand you correctly that you didn't keep the limes? If so, why not? There are so many ways to preserve limes.
It was the state farmers market in Forrest Park. I Kept the limes. I removed the lemons from the box to share with some family members. I have never dehydrated so many apples before. There had to be almost 100 apples in that box. I was dehydrating for days. The market should have oranges by now. I want to dehydrate some oranges.
