We are using our Harvest Right Freeze Dryer to dry cooked meat. The big question is, does it cost a fortune to run? Today we will find out.

This is on my list! Thank you for the nerdy video!! I've had many a Mountain House freeze dried meal. Boiling hot water in a sealed container works great in reconstitution of the food; with MH you can use the bag it comes in. I'm going to experiment with the suggestion in the comments of a food steamer and compare results. Thank again Kevin & Sarah! TC&GB!

Another benefit especially to those of us that don't raise animals or eggs from chickens, is inflation costs. In 20-25 years, a dozen eggs will probably be $20 and everything else will also cost a lot more, including the cost of electricity. You could literally save tens of thousands of dollars by stocking up on freeze dried food now and saving grocery money down the road.

Whole new meaning to "saving for retirement"... tucking away a couple Mylar bags each month in a bin for retirement, even a bin for sick day meals for those times the whole family comes down with a bug and nobody wants to cook! Wonder how chicken and dumplings would come out? I'm also totally shocked it uses so little power. Maybe the next nerdy math project is how many batches of various items to pay it off. Seems like it would be faster than I originally thought. Some of those people who have practically a room full of freezers could eliminate one or more by freeze drying, thus saving the power of running the freezer constantly.

That looked like a very tiny amount of water to rehydrate. Have you figured out a system to know how much water per ounce to rehydrate various foods? I'm saving to get one and so anxious to start saving food by this method. BTW, do you have any rabbits for sale? I can drive up from Oklahoma to pick up a trio, maybe some hatching eggs, or even a piglet or two. I sold off all my animals a couple years ago but now I'm ready to start over again so starting from nothing.

Not sure if you've priced out parsley, chives, cilantro, chervil, etc. for the 4 medium trays. Here, it would be over 8 thousand dollars (!!!) for 5 large trays worth of freeze dried green herbs. Freeze dried green herbs are so much better here, not sure how it is everywhere, but dried is often brown, with tiny sharp unknown things (weed thorns?). Those herbs grow very plentiful for me in the short winter. I'm so spoilt on the fresher flavors, that it's hard to use even my homegrown, flavor lacking, dried herbs in the summer. When it's too hot for most green anything. While I do freeze a bunch of it all, freezer space is at a huge critical premium. Even before early summer on through the rest of the year. It makes me think that if you could get one single load of herbs done, then even if the circuit board goes nuts, or whatever and other serious problems occurred, it would still cover the cost of the machine. Plus at least one return shipping of the lemon machine. Even if HR CS didn't workout, the warranty didn't hold up, and it was all at user expense. Not the stress, or the discouragement, I know, but it seems like a less risky gamble if it at least works, once (past the setup runs).

WOW! you are my favorite homestead couple and I appreciate your videos so much, it is because of you that I will be purchasing the same freeze-dryer at about 2k, I am comfortable and familiar with canning and dehydrating, but since we are facing an uncertain future, power grid failure, solar backup may be our only source of power and canning supplies may become impossible to find in a couple of years, I think it will be very cost effective, I enjoy canning tomato based sauces so much but will try freeze drying and see how it tastes when I'm done, would be great for you to do a video on it, make some salsa and spaghetti sauce from all freeze dried stuff, I am eager to hear how the pork patties and taco meat taste!

That was fascinating and fun to learn about. It makes me think about ways to cook with the finished product. You could combine dried items to make stews and soups, or one pan meals. Here is my request make Bullion powder, cubes or chunks from extremely concentrated broth/stock. This could be used in those premixed stews and soups! And do some Noodles too! You can make cup of soup lunches! I think I want one of those machines!

You can try diy freeze drying (the vacuum part). Used one in a lab setting years ago. Items you need - * an unbreakable vacuum safe container (metal or glass) with a round mouth * a rubber stopper that fits mouth of container * short metal pipe fitted and secured into hole in center of rubber stopper * vacuum safe tubing * vacuum pump 1) Freeze food first in regular fridge or chest freezer. Thinner slabs dry faster, but you can freeze food in cups. 2) Take frozen food out of tray/cup. Put food in vacuum safe container. Break into smaller pieces if needed. Don't fill too full, 1/2-2/3 full is good. 3) Press rubber stopper securely into mouth of container, to make air tight seal. 4) Connect tubing from metal tube in stopper to vacuum pump. You can attach several containers to one pump, if you have/make a fitting to connect multiple lengths of tubing. 5) Run vacuum pump until food is dry and brittle or powdery (if it bends like fruit leather it's not dry enough). 24-36 hours depending on amount of food and number of containers. * when vacuum pump is running, container with food can be at room temperature, suction of vacuum keeps food inside frozen * oops, just remembered lab used a very low temp freezer, so food was super frozen. not sure how regular frozen food would work. The only thing I can't tell you is how strong a vacuum pump is appropriate. Mechanics or engineers could weigh in on that.

Does the number of kilowatt hours include the freeze dryer and the pump? I have an older model and the freeze dryer and pump plug in separately. Just wondering because whenever I share our goodies people ask about the electricity. I just want to make sure that if I share your example it would be similar to mine. Maybe I should just buy a meter since there’s no guarantee the old model is anything like the new model.

In Feb of last year I was able to get a large quantity of some dehydrated foods. My point here applies to the freeze dried as well. Onions and carrots are relevant here. I honestly didn't know how much I might use them but given what was happening in the world bought them. I never have to worry about cutting up an onion or chopping carrots, I just grab a handful. All of my food is stored in #10 cans but once I open a can I transfer the contents to Mason jars. I vacuum seal the jars that will be my backup jars and just use a normal lid for the jar I'm currently using from. Now when I make soup stock, it is SOOO fast. throw in the bones and handfuls of the onion and carrots. (I don't have celery but did just use celery seeds and found it a great substitute) I think my stocks are more flavorful because I'm using more veggies than I should if they were freshly cut. Nice bonus is not having to reconstitute them because they're going straight into a pot of water. Because I"m not cooking for a family, I found there were things I just wasn't motivated to do -- like chop up onions and carrots -- having a handy supply has really improved the variety of food I'm eating as well as flavor and over all nutrition. Writing this message, I've just realized I might start taking kale from my garden and doing the same thing. Maybe spinach. When I don't have them in my garden, it would be easy to toss them in with the eggs I eat in the morning. Thanks for jump starting my thinking. Cheers!

I would think that to find how much water to add to reconstitute you would weight everything before (in the pans is fine) and weigh again when it's freeze dried - if you weigh them in the pans after they're done if you weighed them in the pans before freeze drying. The difference is the weight of the water, so you would just add that weight in water.

At 6:53 I see the green pump. You never mentioned the pump. I have learned from other users that is the upgrade pump. It would be good if in another video you touch base on why you upgraded from the standard one that comes with the machine. I still can't find the watt meter in your Amazon store, I wanted to let you get a commission when I buy it. I guess if I go to your store first then buy other place you will still get something so that is what I'll do.

As soon as I sell my property I am going to invest in one of these freeze dryers and try doing that. I have fingers and toes crossed my buyers obtain their financing because I agreed to make their purchase contingent on them getting the financing.

Wow that was great even though I rarely eat meat I think it applies to veggies too. I know it's hard to figure cost of your own meat that you raise because I raised pigs, rabbits, and chickens when my kids were little when my husband was living. There are so many variables that go into the cost of raising animals but even if it cost more it's worth knowing what you fed, and how you treated your own food animals during their life and death. Also please tell where to get the wattage meter thingy. I looked in description of this video and in your Amazon store for the wattage tracker meter but it isn't there. Are you going to put it in your "Things We Love" section? I know I can just google it and find one but I wanted to buy so that you guys get commission.

You gotta include the overhead to be fair about the cost. Find out the expected life of that machine and then apply the cost of the machine to each batch you freeze dry. That plus the cost of your food plus the cost of your supplies plus the cost of the electricity is your actual cost. When people don't take into account the full picture we can be easily hoodwinked into thinking something makes sense.

When you reconstitute, try using a hot broth instead of just water. This is if you don't have freeze dried broths or stocks. How about freeze drying batches of chili or mac and cheese and then reconstituting them and taste testing? I agree with others who suggest how helpful this would be for the elderly.

This has been such an eye opener for us. We have been looking at freeze drying for about a year but were put off the power use (we are on solar only), but I think if we freeze first and then dehydrate we coulld run a freeze dryer. Unfortunately, Harvest Right run on 110 volt, but if we can find a 230-240 v model I will be there. I am wondering about a mix of cooked pasta, ground meat, spice and veg in jars for instant pasta meals for happy camping? Or for going off to college with? Fancy trying that for us?
