Re: Storage query

If you are at all concerned at the temp of your storage location, I heartily recommend you buy one/some of these

Re: Disappearing Carrots: Dehydrator Porn :o)

I'm sorry to say this but mice pee a lot.... I'd bleach the bejeezus out of the worktop you had the thing on as well, you don't want the little blighters to feel too at home do you. Thanks, I pretty much knew that. Yes, I'm going to nuke it with sterilising solution, the rather makeshift 'worktop t...

That's a great size mesh - even mice can't get through a 0.6mm gap, and it's still big enough to allow proper ventilation.
Indeedy. And at 7 quid a sheet it's cheap. There is a cheaper option stitching together sheets from screwfix, but pah! Let's push the boat out.

Re: Disappearing Carrots: Dehydrator Porn :o)

Poor you! It's a really valuable post, though - it made so much sense to put the dehydrator in the shed, and we can't think of everything, you only realise by doing. Thanks. I hoped it would be Can I ask, though - if the little blighters ran across the top of the machine, would their wee/ poo have ...

Re: Disappearing Carrots: Dehydrator Porn :o)

Could of been worse....... you could of had mouse jerky. :twisted: I don't think the mouse/mice were inside the dehydrator while it had food in. It always had the cover shut. ( Yes I know mice are clever at getting through gaps ) They had an easy snack of bits of food outside and around the dryer a...

Re: Disappearing Carrots: Dehydrator Porn :o)

Damn. Damn. Damn. Remember me saying I was running my dehydrator in the shed, so as to mitigate the smell? Well, I went to put some peppers in today and there was lots of mouse poo around it and Yuck, in the bottom 'drip tray' of it. :mrgreen: I always check before putting anything in. It was to be ...

Re: Disappearing Carrots: Dehydrator Porn :o)

I just fell about laughing when I opened my dehydrator today:- Celery: Vital ingredient of post apocalypse spag bol..... It's dehydrated water ! A whole and sizeable head of celery went into the dehydrator yesterday : What came out was a scant handful of tiny green spikes. It took me a while to even...

Re: Disappearing Carrots: Dehydrator Porn :o)

We are now in the ‘hungry gap’, the time our ancestors feared. Now we just import what cannot be grown here at this time of year. I drop dried tomatoes into pasta sauces, curries,etc. I also enjoy growing tomatoes. Fascinating, now I've googled that. So.... It's the nature of 'farm shops' to stack ...

Re: Disappearing Carrots: Dehydrator Porn :o)

I see tomatoes mentioned...I dry loads. I grow loads in the tunnel. Slice ‘em, dry ‘em and store in clean jars. Simples. I've done a few tomatoes, but apart from whacking them in couscous I'm not sure how best to use them. Since supermarket passata and tomato puree are so cheap, compared to fresh t...

Re: Disappearing Carrots: Dehydrator Porn :o)

I finally opened up a jam jar sized kilner jar of home dried onions today, I'm putting them in with some lentils to cook. I absolutely didn't blanch them (never blanched a thing in my life). Am I going to poison myself when I eat them? I don't care about them being a bit brown (I'd describe them as...
