i read that you can also dehydrate by freezing but i don't know if it really works or not. anyone ever done it that way.
we don't own a dehydrator mums never even heard of one lool
i miss bread and garlic butter which i know how to make now yay :)

Um, nooo, never heard of that. From what I understand, dehydration is heat ~ it draws the wet out.
You have a raw bread recipe? If do tell!
If not, there's one here for some really wonder-filled (if you like onion) bread!
btw ~ your name ~ into martial arts by any chance?

im going to work on a way to make bread maybe on a hot day make the dough wrap tinfoil on it and put it in the sun. jesus gave bread so there must be a way lol
i saw the onion bread looks good but i don't own a dehydrator so ill have to find another way thx for replying :D

could you be talking about freeze drying ,if so you freeze the item THEN dehydrate.
the oven/light bulb idea sounds good! :D

I have a crusty garlic bread recipe that is to live for.
It is sooooo marvelous.
Dehydrating is to remove the moisture, so that you can preserve the food, it also helps the taste and texture if you are making essene bread or a flat unlevined bread (the kind you are talking about Jesus making)
there are several ways to do this.
Removing the moisture can be donw by wind, air, heat, when you add all three wind (or a fan), air (movement--a fan) and heat (hopefully not too hot, say the sun or the heat of a dehydrator, or light bulb) then you are dehydrating.
although like you say, you can remove moisture in a refrigerator as this is the wind, the air flow feature.
Freezing does it in a different way, freezing causes the moisture molecules to expand and burst, so the cell walls burst and the moisture can leak out, so you are dehydrating by removing moisture, but in a very different way.
However, it is very clever of you to think of it, and I wish you grand success in all you do, keep us posted, so we can try it too if it works marvelously.
