We taking 10-15 of our chickens to be processed this weekend, but I don't have room in my freezer yet. So, wondering if I can dehydrate them? I have a couple of cheapo dehydrators from Wally World, temp control and fan included. After dehydrating, I plan to put in jars and put in the back of the pantry for long-term storage. When I use, I'll rehydrate (20-30 minutes) or just add to crockpot with water, herbs and dried soup veggies. Probably. I don't like jerky. Questions; Do I cook first? Can I just shred and place on drying racks? Do I need to salt and season first? I can't have much salt because I have high blood pressure and everything I've read online says to highly salt it. Plus my kid won't eat if it has any seasonings on it. What temp and for how long? Thanks.
