At Home
Brown the hamburger beef and drain the fat. Combine the following ingredients into a large 6 qt pot: hamburger, dice tomatoes, can of tomato sauce and a can of tomato paste. Put all of this liquid stuff on medium heat in a crock pot or a stove on medium heat. Now add the carrots, garlic, celery, onions and the bell peppers. Now add all of your vegies into the same pot as the liquid stuff. Reduce the heat to 2/10. Now add in all of the spices, with the optional ones if needed. Now let the sauce simmer for several hours stirring it once in a while. Once done, let the sauce cool down. Then spread a thin layer of the sauce out onto the dehydrator trays. Let it dehydrate for a good 24 hrs or until crumbly.

To rehydrate meal, just add water. You can add as much water as you want, but the more you add the thinner it will get. Bring the sauce to a boil on the stove and stir it when necessary. Once it has started to soften, set it aside and let it reconstructed. Once there’s not much liquid left, turn on the stove again and warm it up and enjoy

Amanda and I decided to split the cooking process. She would get the tomato sauce ready and I would bring in the herbs and garlic. When we got to school we mixed them both together. We then spread the sauce on parchment paper and lay them in the dehydrator. The next day when we checked the dehydrator they were finished. Our presentation kept getting held back until the next day. After hydrating, cooling and re-heating multiple times, we didn’t know whether or not it would be safe for our class to eat. If we were to do the dehydration assignment again we would make sure we re-hydrate our meal and present it soon after. We waited too long and our class wasn’t able to enjoy the delicious
