Dehydrating Frozen Corn
Dehydrating Frozen Corn
Today I am dehydrating frozen corn. Yup! I said frozen corn! Did you know you could dehydrate frozen fruits and vegetables? I’ve been doing this for years. I dehydrate frozen peas, peppers, carrots, cauliflower to name a few. When I see fruits or vegetables on sale in the frozen section I buy enough to dehydrate at least one 1/2 gallon mason jar for long-term storage. You never know when you may have an emergency. An emergency doesn’t have to be a natural disaster. I started storing food after I lost my first job in my 20’s when I was hit with the choice of paying rent or buying food with my unemployment check. It’s not a very good choice to have to make.
Using frozen vegetables cuts the prepping time down. It cuts the blanching or steaming step out because it has already been through the frozen process.
Corn is one of our favorite vegetables that is also a grain. Currently, 90% of corn grown in the USA is GMO. Not Non-GMO but GMO! That just makes me want to grow my own. We usually buy organic frozen corn but still, you have to wonder if it is really organic in the bag with 90% GMO grown.
This is how I go about dehydrating frozen corn or other veggies.
Let’s get to Drying
One pound bag of frozen corn.
Add mesh screen to dehydrator trays
Open frozen corn bag and spread on the tray leaving room for airflow.
Dehydrate at 130F/55C degrees for 10-12 hours.
I use a NESCO dehydrator. My dehydrator can have up to 12 trays.
Corn is dry when it is brittle, shriveled, and firm.
Fill a mason jar and vacuum seal for storage.
There are 8 pounds of frozen corn filling the half-gallon mason jar.
Two Servings of dried corn.
Pour into pot and add 1 1/2 – 2 cups warm water. Let sit for 5-15 minutes to refresh.
Refreshed/Rehydrated, cooked, and ready to eat.
