Storing food is a great way to save money and ensure a ready supply of food in cases of emergency. Most people stock up on canned goods and processed foods because of their long shelf life and lack of preparation needed to store them. Dehydrating is a great way of preserving fresh foods while adding something tasty and nutritious to your food stocks.
