Tried Something New ..... Learned Something New

It has been a day of putzing around the old homestead. I had a few carrots left and so decided to try dehydrating them.


So out of the 8 carrots I had left, I washed, peeled and thinly sliced 4 of them. Putting the slices on the racks seemed to take the longest.

I dried them for about 7 hours and they became slightly crisp. This is what I have after drying them.


They turned out so well that I am thinking of doing the last 4 in the same manner. A bit of a job for tomorrow!!! My carrots will be done and the garden put to sleep for another year. I think I may do a bit more dehydrating next year when it comes time to put up the harvest.

I promised you all some more pictures from our trip. Here are some views of the scenery in the Highlands.

Everyone have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

I have enjoyed your pictures so much, Jackie. I keep returning to look at some of them again and again. Oh, I do hope we get to make the trip across the pond ourselves!
