    life changing event

    don't worry, in a good way.... I bought a good size food dehydrator off cheabay that arrived today Andrew James 6 Tray Digital Food Dehydrator, Fruit Preserver, Beef Jerky Dryer | eBay (£40 delivered)

    made fallow fillet jerky, ate it ALL in one go

    ... kids and wife helped but she took the last piece which I'm really not happy about in fairness

    I've been meaning to give this a go for a while but so glad I just went for it, if its crossed your mind then just do it because its simple to do and so rewarding

    Did you cut it by hand or use a slicer? I don't have a chiller so not sure I'll be able to cut it thin enough as it'll be very fresh and probably still a bit soft. Maybe semi freeze it?

    I cut mine 1/4 inch thick, and use a couple of jerky mixes from basspro, although you can make your own mix.

    A food dehydrator uses a combination of heat and air flow to remove moisture from whatever is put inside it. You can typically vary both the temperature and the drying time accordingly for different products - fruit, vegetables, meat, etc. It basically replicates how our forebears used to prepare food for storage by leaving any surplus food to air-dry.

    There are lots of recipes on the net for making jerky in a dehydrator, for example:

    Pineapple, banana, apple, tomatoes, etc seem to work particularly well when dried in a dehydrator. If I see them on offer in the supermarket I'll buy them, slice them thinly, and pop them in the dehydrator.
