    Dehydrated applesauce specifically is so underrated. It’s like the candy of dehydrated fruit and just so good

      I'd love to try it.. though I do question dehydrated foods "lower weight" value, considering you have to carry more water to stay hydrated on a long hike, since you took all the water out of your food lol

      ​@JC Green or if you make the applesauce from whole apples. It's actually not that hard (:

    Pro tip: if you weight the food before dehydrating it, you can add just enough water to bring that exact amount of water back and it'll taste perrrrfect

      Yes! I know nothing about dehydrating food, but this is essentially what I was taught in chemistry in highschool.

      @crooks they might not use as much water as the fruit initially had. Also so much easier to pack fruit leather than jars of apple sauce

    • SilentWolf20
      SilentWolf20 Month ago

      @crooks ​ their already carrying water so it doesnt matter honestly what this guy is saying is that if you measure the water weight beforehand then you can add that exact amount of water and again they are already carrying water for themselves and to rehydrate food so it doesnt matter it could actually save weight if they optimize it correctly and they will have access to water frequently

    • John L
      John L Month ago

      That's precisely the reason I never opted for dehydrated foods in the military, and stuck with the disgusting MREs... You don't save any weight at all if you carry the proper amount of water to rehydrate the food, or to digest the food after eating it dry.
      The benefit is really just that it's smaller and takes up less space in your pack. The negative is that it adds extra steps, time, and equipment (like a bowl, stove, and water to clean them) for eating. Not only did I not want to deal with that, but the prep time and clean up time was impractical for military operations. For regular people, it's a choice of convenience vs taste. For "work", 90% of the time it's better to not use dehydrated foods.
      The only time we ever used dehydrated food was in Arctic Warfare exercises. We boiled snow for water, so it actually was lighter than regular foods. Plus, at extreme low temperatures at sea level, regular food would freeze in your pack

    The transition from cooked fruit leather to dehydrating apple sauce happened so fast for me it made me think you were dehydrating the same apple sauce you just hydrated and this poor apple sauce would be trapped in an endless cycle.

    It always makes me happy to see ppl out and about.. I miss hiking.. or being peacefully alone in the woods for days or weeks at a time..

      It’s not a recipe… it’s literally just cooking it or using another process to remove all the water from it. It’s one ingredient. A recipe takes multiple ingredients… 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Sadly our new puppy chewed through the dehydrators cord so no applesauce fruit leather for me anytime soon 🥲

      ​@Thomas P.3 - 5% nutrient loss due to low heat during the drying cycle and the gentle air flow, this translates to minimal loss. This means that there is less than 5% nutrient loss on dehydrated food on ANY size portion . vs. 40% - 80% in canned or frozen.
