I'm new to the dehydrating thing, but would like to give it a try. Please forgive me if my quesitons are rudimentary. I just picked up some Ball canning jars and would like to try storing dehydrated food.
How long can I expect these foods to stay good once i seal them up in the jar? How can I tell if they've gone bad?
And is there a secret to sealing the jars, or can i just twist them on like a normal jar? Do i have to boil them shut like with normal canning? One of my concerns about normal canning is that there's always the possibility of botulism.
Thank you so much for any info!
