How to dehydrate Carrots using a dehydrator.
Dehydrating Carrot is a good way to preserve some Carrots for Winter cooking.
We can grow and buy Carrots all year round in Australia, so it is not the first dehydrating project on the list, however if you have an abundance of Carrots, including fermented Carrots, then you may want to dehydrate some for later use.
DEHYDRATING CARROTS PROCESS
Wash Carrots, discard top and slice into 4mm pieces / over 1/8 inch
Blanche Sliced or Diced Carrot for 2 minutes in boiling water
Julienne 1 minute and Grated doesn't need blanching
Place carrot on dehydrator trays in a single layer with room for air circulation
Dehydrating Carrots Temperature - 50C / 125F
Dehydrating Carrots Time - up to 15 hours (Guide Only)
Carrots are dehydrated when shrunken up, leathery and no moisture inside.
Sliced or Diced - 1 hour cooking
Julienned or Grated - 30 minutes cooking
