Mostly in chili and soups, but I have used it for some desserts. We are not big sweets people, but I used it before for a recipe for some pumpkin fluff that was a Maryjane recipe a while back

Lisa how do you use the pumpkin powder?

That sounds good Sara! If it turns out, I'd like the recipe.
I'm dehydrating the many pumpkins we grew. Cook, puree, spread on sheets, dehydrate, then buzz up in Vitamix. I am always amazed at how little dust a pumpkin produces.
In the photo I've attached, see how much dust from a pumpkin larger than the one pictured. Crazy!

Michelle, I googled chili peppers for mix and found the ones that are good to use - ancho, chipotles, moritas, pasillas, guajillo and chiles de árbol. Fresh pasillas are available locally so will dry them and mix with chipotles. I have dried can chipotle peppers in sauce before so will do that again. After drying both peppers they'll go in the blender to make powder. I'll let you know what recipe I used or if I made up my own; and how it turned out.

I don't have a mix recipe, but it sounds like it would be fun and yummy to do. Good luck with it Sara.

Today and tomorrow drying celery and green onions. Next week I want to dry more onions. Thinking about making my own chili mix. May dry chili peppers or find a source for them. Haven't decided which way to go.

Sara I bet you and your sisters can still have a lot of fun, and a little trouble. lol I love having dried apples to put in oatmeal or as snacks. I do have a gallon jar of them dried.

Overnight I dried 3 lbs of apples with cinnamon and sugar. The apples were given to me by my sister who got them from the Farm to Table project that I talked about on the canning tread.

Michelle, getting into trouble looks a lot different at 78 than it did at 48.

I've finally gotten into using my dehydrator this year!

Have mostly dried herbs - parsley, rosemary, sweet basil and regular basil.

Also have done a couple bathes of dried tomatoes!!!

I'm going to try using the dehydrator on a batch of salt dough ornaments next - we're crafting gifts ahead of time this year and it will be nice to not have to have the oven on for so long drying them...
windypines Posted - Sep 06 2020 : 03:32:13 AM
Oh fun Sara. I do a tray of each, or whatever is needed. I will dry more before it freezes, but for now it is good enough.

Michelle, at the end of the season I dry the herbs that have grown since the last cutting. This cutting is usually small so I combine the herbs and call it Herbs de Texas a play on Herbs de Provence. Gotta have fun while taking care of business.

finally got some basil, sage, and rosemary drying this afternoon. A few tomatoes will be up next. The season is slowing down, things are getting put away.

I dried parsley. I have a dehydrator but I don't like to use it for herbs as the fan blows it around so I put it on a clean iwindow screen and put it in my car parked in the sun. I figured the car isn't going anywhere now so why not.

Andrea, I had those same thoughts about drying apples coated with cinnamon sugar, was the mess really worth it. lol I have the last of the onions drying, and drying a tray of tomato skins. Ladies do you use powder to add more tomato flavor in dishes?

More tomatoes in the dehydrator today. The small red pear ones. I found a recipe that uses honey, balsamic vinegar, basil and a few other things. They were so sticky I ran the dehydrator for 3 days. They do taste good but I don't know how long they will keep. Back to plain tomatoes.

Good information Sara about garlic. You keep us informed for sure. Good luck with your drying Andrea, and Theresa. I have one more batch of onion to dry and then get back at some herbs. The rosemary and sage and basil needs to be done.

My new cookbook "The Garlic Lovers' Cookbook Vol II from Gilroy CA the Garlic Capital of the World has this info:

1 average size clove of fresh garlic = 1/8 tsp garlic powder

Now I know how much garlic powder to use in recipes.

This morning drying chives, sage, Italian oregano.

Hi Andrea, welcome to the Farm. Sounds like you have a good place for your dehydrator. Over the last couple of days I've dried 2 bunches of kale - one bunch to go - and 1 bunch of turnip greens.
