A Food Dehydrater Makes Delicious Treats For Campers

While a food dehydrator may not be the first thing that comes to mind when trying to think of a great present to give somebody who loves camping, it's a thoughtful and useful gift.

My dehydrator gets a big workout before every camping trip making several batches of beef and turkey jerky along with fruit leathers and dried fruit from whatever fruit is in season.

They are so tasty and much better than anything from a package bought in the store! Plus they are easy to transport and store while camping - no refrigeration is needed. My husband loves to grab a couple pieces of jerky and some dried fruit to tuck in his daypack before his hiking adventures in the state parks we enjoy camping at.
