Sounds like you are having fun experimenting with your toy. You'll soon get the hang of it and what works best for you.

This week I made dried apple slices. And made treats for the dog, he loves dried sweet potatoes.View attachment 6306
Today I have more potatoes in. This time I cubed them and they seem more uniform and drying better. I just threw out the last 4 quarts I did. They may not have been dry enough and I put them in jars. I looked and all where molding. :( This batch will go into seal saver bags with all air taken out. I still have a full crate to process. They are all sprouting BIG time. :(
Carol, when they start sprouting I make vegetable soup and can it in quarts. I freeze veggies especially to go in that soup.

Frustrating isn't it when they start to sprout. I feel like I need to do something so soup it is.

I did use a bunch in soup. Still a crate to go. (There where 3 crates!) It is so frustrating as last year we put them in a place that was TOO COLD and all froze solid. This year, too warm and too much light. :( Got to find the perfect place next year. Jeepers.

Good for you on dog treats, here dried sweet potatoes are outrageously expensive !!
Yes they are very expensive here, too. I also bake a dog treat he likes that is super simple and very inexpensive. (PNButter, milk and flour!)
