For this badge bit, you will dehydrate at least two pounds of food.
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- you must use a solar food dehydrator - you must have two pounds of food before dehydration
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
- a picture of your food on a scale before dehydration (or, obviously far more than two pounds)
- a picture of your food in your solar dehydrator before dehydration (with entire structure of dehydrator)
- a picture of your food in your solar dehydrator after dehydration (with entire structure of dehydrator)
Build a Solar Dehydrator
If there is already a solar dehydrator that you can use, you can skip this step.
I did both kale and tomatoes for this bb. I was so eager to use the dehydrator I didn't read the documentation needed beforehans and then the group and myself were excited to eat it afterwards so the finished kale picture is the meager scraps haha. I don't have a photo on the scale but I do know it was approximately 12 Roma tomatoes and 4 bunches of three leaves of kale. Thought I'd post my documentation and give it a shot!
This took a long time to certify because the scale requirement was not met. I have decided to certify this because we are still quite early into PEP - but future BBs need to meet all of the requirements.
