Anyone tried freeze drying using dry ice?
Freeze dried fruits and veggies are so terribly expensive, yet they are more nutritious, taste better and store longer. I've been trying to figure out how to freeze dry my garden and orchard produce. There don't seem to be any 'gadgets' to make this possible.
In searching the web, I found folks using dry ice to flash freeze produce and dry through the process of sublimination. Fortunately, I have been able to enlist the support of a very bright engineer friend to help plan my project. He has come up with some excellent suggestions and I'm looking forward to experimenting.
Just wondering what experiances you folks may have had in trying this?
