Hi hi! You see, I've gone on a food drying frenzy lately. Well, I've dried everything but the family pet and I've run out of fruits and veggies. Does anyone have any ideas. I want to know if sweet potatoes can be dried as well. I"m going on a week long camping trip in a few days and this would all be very helpful. Thanky
Hey, fairie. Some if my favorite dried fruits and vegetables are cranberries, grapes (raisins), coconut, apples, mango (yummy!), papaya, cherries, apricots, beef (beef jerky), peaches, tomatoes (sun-dried tomatoes, virtually every fruit and vegetable can be dried, as long as it appeals to your taste. Know something like strawberries would shrivel to a very small size, but, its worth a try! As for your question about drying sweet potatoes, yes you can dry them, too! Like I said, practically anything can be dried.
Hope this bit helped, and good luck on the camping trip.

To dry foods, you can (I think) lay them in the sun. Though I'm not sure it'll work, it's worth a try. Another way is to purchase a food-dehydrator. One brand is Magic Chef. Here are a few websites you can go to.
