Dehydrated Soup

Has anybody tried to dehydrate soup. I was thinking of trying some vegtible soup from a can and just spreading it around in my dehydrator. I would probably come out looking kind of funny, like a chunky fruit roll. From there i could just zip lock it.

If you are just going to dehydrate a can of soup, you might as well purchase predried soup from MEC. I really recommend the following book: It is full of yummy simple recipes that dehydrate beautifully.[/url]

Soupworks and Bear Creek both make really good just add water soups as well.

I'd say go for it, a $0.50 can of soup is much cheaper than a $3-$8 bag of soup from mec

Bear Creek soup is cheap and it makes good portions.

Knorr Soup is even cheaper! And there are like 30 or 40 flavours.

No problem aarondilger. I use the inserts for my dehydrator that allow the processing of mushy stuff. Just spread the soup out thinly. Just make sure it is very dry (especially if it has meat in it) or it could spoil. I have some food restrictions so precook whole one-pot meals and then dehydrate them. They taste much better than the store bought meals or meals made from pre-dried ingredients. Also much more economical if you do lots of trips.

my whole idea was to have a little fun and save a little money. the soups from a can are a lot less expensive than predehydrated soup. And they are a whole lot less expensive than Mountain House. (Is any thing more expensive than Mountain House) I just bougth the plastic trays for my dehydrator that allow me to use liquids and i will use those. I am thinking that i could use one of those just add water soup consentrates, there is no point in getting the ready out of the san soups. i am just going to be taking the water out any ways.
One more question, if i use a soup with meat, how safe will it be and how long can i store it. i have never worked with meat before. does it have to be refrigerated?

jerkey doesnt have to be refrigerated, so assuming you get all the water out, you would just have little pieces of jerkey in your soup

Soups & sauces should be no problem, just take the time to get them dry to the touch after they are cool. Look for the low sodium brands and you body will thak you.
I agree with the rest however. When you consider the time and electrical energy used, stuff like Knorr & Lipton Soup works are cheap and taste pretty dam good on a cold rainy day.
