All foods can be dried, vegetables & meat & all vegetables can be dried, even brassicas. You can dry foods in the sun, or over a fire or in the open oven of a wood fired stove. Pumpkin sliced & placed on oven trays ready for drying. Apple sliced & placed on racks for drying on top of our wood fired stove, & in the open oven. Using office filing draws for drying foods over the top of our wood fired stove. Sliced apple on a rack over a wood fired heater during winter. Potato sliced thin & dried looking like potato chips. Roasted pumpkin seeds for a tasty snack keep for ages. Corn strung on strings in the house for drying on the cob. Parched corn, dried corn & popped corn, all make excellent trail foods. Keith.
