Back Country Instructions

Back country preparation is super easy. First allow the rice to cool down to almost room temperature. Once cool, pour 1½ - 2 cups of mixture onto the drying sheet lined dehydrator tray. The picture at the top of the post is rice on the drying sheet ready to go into the dehydrator.
Use the vegetable setting (125 degrees) for this dish and allow to dry for 6-8 hours, overnight usually will do it. Drying time will depend on many factors, including consistency and thickness of the rice loaded into the trays.
