So, first I want to know about reusable produce bags. I made a quick trip to the grocery store after vacation, and after I looked at this picture of my food, I was disgusted by the number of produce bags I brought home.
I brought my own cloth shopping bags, of course, but it seems silly to do that and still use plastic produce bags.
I suppose I could save the plastic bags, but they’re not very sturdy, and so I’d really rather find a reusable alternative.
So, if you’ve found a sturdy, not-crazy-expensive reusable produce bag source, I’d dearly love to hear about it in the comments.
Or if you’ve thought of a way to make a really light bag yourself, I’m all ears.
I’ve been wanting to get a dehydrator for a while now, so I bought one at Aldi when they had them in stock. I used it to make fruit leather and was very unhappy with how it worked (there was no fan, the heat seemed to be uneven so the fruit leather was mushy in one spot while getting too crispy in another, even though I rotated the trays, and it smelled bad when I turned it on.) I finally put my fruit leather into the oven so that it would dry properly.
So, I returned the dehydrator, got my money back, and I’m thinking about saving up for a better one.
I know a number of you use dehydrators, so could you tell me which one you have and whether or not you like it? Is it a lot simpler than using your oven to dry foods?
Thanks in advance, you guys!
