Well, I am finally doing it. I dont have a dehydrator yet, so how do I use my oven to do it? Whats a good starter to dehydrate? :confused:
I have a juicer, an Omega 2000. It does the job quite nicely. I have a blender and food processor. An y advice for the newbie???????

My advice would be to get Alissa's book and dvd's and also search out a local level 1 and 2 teacher (her site, AlissaCohen.com lists them for you) who can answer all your questions as well as show you how easy it is to create great tasting recipes.
As far as using your oven as a dehydrator ~ that's probably one of the top 3 questions asked here. You might wish to do a search on this site and see what comes up.
Welcome and enjoy your stay!

You are well on your way. I always say you can start with a Sharp knife, but with your Juicer, Food processor and Blender you are doing just great.
When I first started I used the dehydrater to make crackers, now I seldom use it. But I feel ya, can you get your oven down to 105 degrees? Some say dehydrate between 105 and 118 depending on whose Book you read. Now- I avoid it because it takes too long, I think up other ways to get the water out during my mixing or mostly eat it in its Natural state.
After a while you can become creative but you will work this out or you might like to make dishes using the dehydrating method.
I am so Thrilled you have joined us and I so look forward to hearing more from you about your Journey............
I wish you everything you need to Stay RAW........Welcome to MY World.......

Hi Michelle, and welcome. I used to live in Flowery Branch, near Gainesville, GA, now live in N.W. GA. I think you are doing great, and the dehydrator is really not necessary. As far as using your oven, you can try it, it would have to be barely on and would probably work a whole lot faster than a dehydrator. If you try it, let us know how it turns out. :) Go Dawgs!
