I've become interested in dehydrating foods. I had to pick up a food dehydrator for a recent job and am now trying to find some fun things to do with it. A friend brought me some dried okra the other day that was really quite tasty-like eating okra flavored potato chips. I've been trying to make those nice dried strawberries with this thing but haven't had any success yet. They're just kind of rubbery and dark. What about the safety of making jerky? Anyone experienced with that?
