I found Bell peppers for $0.48 cents at Sprouts and price matched them at WM. Bell peppers were $0.78 at WM. So, I saved $1.50. This winter, they will be $1 or more. Five huge Bell peppers dehydrated fit into a half-pint jelly jar. It is always shocking how food shrinks in the dehydrator. I usually put only a half inch strip from a Bell pepper into soup or whatever for flavor. I love the flavor in other foods but cannot bear eating it.
There are pictures, but I still have to figure out how to get the Easy Share Kodak drivers for me new computer.
Because of the dehydrating process, the pieces are tiny. It would be easy to use half of the one cup yield in one pot of food. However, four or five pieces would equal the strip I use. Of course, for lots of things I would use 1/4 of a pepper to season. Lots of Bell pepper goes into meatloaf at my house. Since it must be smaller than the pieces I dehydrated, I will rehydrate the Bell pepper and use my kitchen shears to make it smaller for the meatloaf.
Do you use Bell pepper as regularly as I do? Have you ever dehydrated Bell pepper?
