We got ahold of a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer for a couple of weeks to test out and review. Freeze drying takes all of the water out of the food, making it storable for a much longer period of time (many foods can store for 25 years when freeze dried). Freeze dried food is becoming more and more popular among hikers and campers, as well as preppers, and is now sold by many companies such as Mountain House, Wise, Backpacker's Pantry, Emergency Essentials, etc.
In this video, we'll walk you through the initial setup of the machine, as well as the process to freeze dry your own food. We'll show you the things we learned along the way, between ideal machine placement, maintenance, etc.
