I'm a big dehydrator fan! I've canned pickles, dehydrated almost everything else. I dry my tomato slices, put them in one-pint bags, and then pulverize when I'm ready to make sauces, ketchups, what-have-you. I stopped trusting freezers when we were hit with a hurricane, a few years back, and we lost everything because the power was out for almost two weeks. All the canned and dehydrated foods were just fine.
