The Harmony House dehydrated food conversion chart provides quick and easy access to rehydration instructions and yield (by weight and volume) of our products. These tips will maximize your use of dry-food ingredients and ultimately provide more cost savings. All of our dried vegetables, fruits, beans, and legumes are non-GMO and gluten free – enjoy!
Dehydrated vegetables maintain a high level of their nutritive value and can be used in a variety of recipes. To rehydrate vegetables, combine 1 part vegetable with 2 parts water. Then, simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or soak for 1-2 hours. It is not necessary to rehydrate vegetables prior to using them in a recipe that requires cooking.
Dried Beans & Legumes
No sorting, cleaning, or soaking is necessary for our dried beans and legumes. Simply add 1 cup of water to 1 cup of beans, simmer for 10-15 minutes, and enjoy!
Freeze Dried Vegetables
These light, airy vegetables can be eaten raw or rehydrated instantly in water. To rehydrate, add 1 cup of water to 1 cup of vegetables. Then, heat and serve.
Freeze Dried Fruit
Our fresh-tasting freeze dried fruit is a customer favorite and easy to use. You can eat these fruits directly from the container for a healthy snack or rehydrate them instantly in water or milk. For a delicious pie or pastry filling, add 1 cup of water to 1 cup of fruit.
Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)
TVP can be added directly to soups and stews, or rehydrated for a healthy, meatless option. To rehydrate, add 2 cups of water to 1 cup of TVP and soak or simmer for 5-10 minutes. Because this product is already precooked, you can use it “raw.” Try sprinkling TVP on a salad or pizza, or eat it as a snack.
