A Home Freeze Dryer from Harvest Right(R), now available at Tri-State Outfitters, will quickly pay for itself in a number of ways.
– Families can preserve food they normally waste and throw away.
– Easily preserve produce from gardens and fruit trees.
– Create your own long term emergency food storage.
A number of studies show that an average American family wastes 40% of their food purchases per year. A lot of food is thrown out because people either get tired of it or it spoils.
With a home freeze dryer families can save and preserve food that now gets put in the garbage. Leftover meats, fruits and vegetables can be freeze dried and saved for future use.
In one year alone, a family of four may be able to easily preserve 2 to 4 months worth of food they would normally waste.
Until now, canning and dehydrating were the best ways ways to preserve food for future consumption. However, these methods have huge drawbacks. Canning is messy and it takes a lot of time. Canning and dehydrating use heat, which greatly reduces the nutritional value of food, and both methods change the flavor, color and texture of foods. Worst of all, the shelf life of canned and dehydrated foods is relatively short at just 2 to 3 years.
Freeze drying solves these problems! It preserves the taste and nutritional value of food for a very long time (after proper packaging). As long as 25 years, as a matter of fact; with freshness, nutrition, color and flavor still intact!
If you’re a hiker, a backpacker, a hunter or any kid of an outdoor lover, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to enjoy your favorite meals in the wild. You can freeze dry lightweight, easy-to-prepare meals that will taste amazing! People who have to travel for a living, while suffering food allergies, can pack lightweight, nutritional food they can quickly prepare and safely eat on the road.
How tough is it to freeze dry your own food? Not tough at all. The freeze dryer is smart. It will dry any food without requiring human interaction. It essentially senses the moisture in the food and will automatically dry it until the process is complete. It takes about a day to freeze dry a batch. Additionally, the food in a batch to be processed can be mixed, meaning you can process any combination of foods you want by placing different foods on different tray. Do fruits, meats and vegetables all at the same time!
