Consider Solar Food Drying for Your Survival Pantry

Consider solar food drying for your survival pantry because one day we may need to live with limited electricity, or none at all. Why not let free energy from the sun dry your vegetables, fruits and herbs?

The Solar Food Dryer: How to Make and Use Your Own Low-Cost, High Performance, Sun-Powered Food Dehydrator, by Eben V. Fodor will help you do that.

Fodor is an organic gardener with a background in solar energy and engineering. He knows a great deal about renewable energy. Here’s what his book includes:

  • Complete step-by-step plans for building a high-performance, low-cost solar food dryer from readily available materials
  • Solar energy design concepts
  • Food drying tips and recipes
  • Resources, references, solar charts, and more

This is a book that won’t just sit on your survival library shelf. You’ll want to put this one to use because of its practical information. One reviewer calls it a killer book. Step by step instructions are said to be easy to follow, even if you’re not mechanically inclined.

Get The Solar Food Dryer by clicking on its title wherever you see it linked in this post. You’ll be taken to the page where the book is featured. Add it to your cart from there.

If you don’t want to build your own non-electric food dehydrator, get the Hanging Solar Food Dehydrator. But by all means look into ways to dry food without electricity that are practical and workable. Your survival might depend on it.
