Plant a Plentiful Garden This Spring to Reap the Health Benefits Year Round

(Diet and Weight Loss), It's spring and that means planting season in many parts of the country. With the rising cost of fresh fruits and vegetables, smart gardeners are expanding their gardens and plan to preserve their fresh fruits and vegetables using a dehydrator.

"We've definitely seen a surge in customers who want to preserve the results of their gardens so that they can enjoy the healthful goodness of their fresh produce year round," comments Shauna Verkade, President and CEO at Excalibur. "People are recognizing that dehydrating is an extremely cost effective method to make healthy foods."

The Excalibur is considered the highest quality, most versatile food dehydrator on the market. "I bought an Excalibur last year after I became concerned about the quality of many of the foods I buy at the grocery store," explains Alana Smyth from Madison, Wisconsin. "We have a very large garden, and I'm always searching for ways to use the harvest. With the Excalibur I process my fruits and vegetables all through the season and my family gets to enjoy delicious and healthy dishes and snacks throughout the year."

In addition to preserving the harvest, the Excalibur food dehydrator helps families save money too. "I always tell my gardening friends that from the first stalk of rhubarb to the very last pumpkin, the Excalibur is the perfect companion for any type of gardener," says Verkade. "Simply pick a little, dry a little, from one end of the season to the other and enjoy the results of your efforts on pizzas, in salad and soups, as savory appetizers and tasty snacks."
