DRY: Fruit and Vegetable Powders

Everyday @ Instock we make fresh juices to drink, or to make recipes with.  There is always so much pulp left over, so I thought it could be fun to dry them out and see how they taste…  Just put them in the dehydrator, or in your oven.  Spread it super thin for faster results.  When it’s hard and dry put it in your blender, blend on high for a few seconds.  If your blender isn’t so strong you may need to sieve afterwards.

Here we have carrot, beetroot and tomato powders.

The flavours are really interesting, you actually get quite a lot of umami.  And if you think about it, it’s really a very slow form of cooking.  You can also ferment items first for and extra dimension.

Looks cool, full of flavour.  What else can we use it for?
