If you are planning an overnight trip or taking the family on a day hike, making your own dehydrated meals and snacks is a lot easier than you might think! Whether you need a week's worth of complete meals, or just some munchies, you'll enjoy this class. There's more to dehydrating than just beef jerky, and dehydrating your own food means you know what's in it, and what's not. Join REI staff member, Karinn, as she explains her best methods and shares tasty recipes for dehydrating with a traditional electric dehydrator and using our dry desert climate for an open air dehydrator to make your new favorite packable meals and snacks.
