How to Dehydrate Celery in a dehydrator
I don't use much Celery, nor do I usually grow it, however when I want some for Winter Stews and Bone Broth, then I don't want to waste what is left in the bunch.
Leaving it to wilt in the back of the fridge, until all good intentions of using it are futile, once again, is insanity and a waste of good food. It is also not necessary when it is so easy to dehydrate. It shrinks down so much it takes very little space and you will have Celery for future cooking projects, which is saving money or if you grow it, garden space. Now I am seriously considering growing Celery again.....
DEHYDRATING CELERY PROCESS
Wash Celery, cut off end and remove leaves
Destring Celery if requiring faster rehydration time (Optional)
Cut into 1/4 inch pieces
Blanche for 2 minutes in boiling water (Optional)
Place Celery on dehydrator trays, in a single layer, with space around each piece for good air circulation
Celery Dehydrating Temperature 55C or 125F
Celery Dehydrating Time up to 18 hours (Guide Only)
Swap trays around every few hours
REHYDRATE DEHYDRATED CELERY
Destrung Celery - Cook for at least 45 minutes
Whole Celery Pieces - Cook for at least 3 hours
