View Full Version : Subs For Raw Crackers And Bread
01-08-2008, 12:02 AM
I JUST REALIZED I DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT DEHYDRATOR TO MAKE RAW CRACKERS AND BREAD. I HAVE (DON'T LAUGH) BECAUSE I'M NEW AND BOUGHT THE RONCO 5-TRAY TYPE. DID NOT KNOW YOU NEEDED TEFLEX SHEETS? FOR THE LIQUID FOODS:eek: LIQUIDS DRIPPED EVERYWHERE IN THE DEHYDRATOR. DON'T HAVE THE MONEY FOR THE EXCALIBUR BUT WORKING ON IT.
IS THERE ANY CRACKER AND/OR BREADS I CAN BUY THAT IS RAW? EX:EZEKIEL BREAD OR ORGAIN MULTIGRAIN CRACKERS?
HELPA TRYING-TO-BE-RAW GIRL OUT :p

You can buy raw crackers and bread. You might have to do it online and it might be expensive, but you can get them. I can get raw crackers at my health food store.
The things you listed are not raw. They are baked.

I've got a Ronco someone gave me.
You can make crackers in it. I place cut out parchment paper in the trays. I actually filled four trays this morning with savory and sweet flax crackers.
You can make it work. It just takes a little effort cutting the paper.

I've done what veggie luver has done with the parchment paper but I used some type of plastic I happened to have in the kitchen and just cut it to the size I needed. It works!!!

I have a similar one too. I use the parchment all the time. It works great. Mine also came with one plastic tray insert that I can fill with things like marinara to dehydrate. (I think it's meant to make fruit roll ups and such, but I use it for raw stuff!) Maybe you could purchase one of those to add to your dehydrator. Don't dispair...I've been using this machine for over a year and it works just great!;)

The problem with the Ronco type, is that it heats at 120 degrees and has no temp control. I have one that I rarely use, and am planning on upgrading to an Excaliber asap.

amberstorm, you can get an inexpensive (maybe $5) temperature gauge from a regular supermarket. I always use one or two to make sure. Most dehydrators, even the best ones, have hot spots.
Looks like this: Temperature gauge (http://www.tejassmokers.com/images/IMG_0147.jpg) and fits between trays.

I have also heard that you can put stuff in your oven and just use the light for heat, or alternatively turn it on the lowest heat and leave the door open a crack...I have done this and it works, but I have no idea what the temp was, but I figured I could easily touch my food at all times, it wasn't hot just warm....

I dont have any telflex sheets either, I have heard that waxpaper or parchment paper works just as well though. So maybe you dont need alternatives.
