So you have jars full of dehydrated food; now it's time to put the water back in! But not just "any old water!" If you wouldn't drink it, don't use it. It's common sense. The measuring jar shown in the above photo contains dehydrated carrots, peas, green beans, and potatoes. Yes, the humble beginnings of a great vegetable soup!

How Much Water To Add?

The rule of thumb when re-hydrating dehydrated food is two to one. Two parts water to one part food. If you have excess water in the jar after re-hydrating, just toss it.

Let's take a look now at how much water these veggies soaked up!
