Welcome to Step 5 of our Six Simple Steps — this post covers the vacuum-sealing of food especially for long-term storage. I really like vacuum-sealing dehydrated food over other methods for a few reasons:

2. No wasted electricity (no freezer storage necessary)

Obviously you'll need a food vacuum-sealer and I highly recommend the FoodSaver brand. I've had mine for years and it gets the job done. Tools you'll need:
