I've been thinking about getting a dehydrator, and sure, it would be great for making my own jerky, but I find my thoughts going to other places like, "I could dry tomatoes in August and blueberries in July and apricots in June..." etc.
But is eating seasonally more important? Does it really make sense to eat a blueberry in February?
Since going Paleo, I've gotten pretty tight with my seasonality, making a few exceptions in the winter, as things do get bleak around here (Oregon), especially because I have a toddler at home. An example of a compromise is waiting for kiwis until they come from California, not New Zealand.
So do you can/dehydrate/freeze your seasonal bounty only to consume it in some other season? Does anyone have an opinion on this?
