  1. Jason,

    Yes, you can certainly dehydrate crab apples with the skins on. Just halve them, cut out the seeds/core (if you choose) and lay them on your dehydrator, in a single layer.


  2. Able Oaks Dairy Goats,

    I sure do make cheese with goat milk. Yogurt, ice cream, sour cream and butter, too. I’m really glad Velvet gave us triplet does!!~!


  3. Hello:

    I have an Excalibur food dehydrator and was wondering if it would be possible to dehydrate crabapples. We have a very productive tree in our back yard that has given us buckets of these beautiful, sweet and small (approx 1 – 1.5″ diameter) apples. This I’m thinking would be a wonderful way to put by some of these tasty fruits before they start to go bad. I’d prefer (if possible, because of their small size as well as to preserve the nutrition) to leave the skins on. We’ve made plenty of applesauce so we’d like to try something else with them.

    Any suggestion on how to do this if indeed it’s possible?

    Thanks a bunch


  4. Dairy goats are really nice animals and very smart. Do you make your own cheeses from their milk?
