EDIBLE FLOWER, FRUIT OR VEGETABLE BOUILLON POWDER
Categories : Master Mix
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Vegetables, your choice of flavors--see notes -- sliced thin and evenly.
Place the vegetables in your dehydrator and dehydrate according the the instructions for each vegetable until completely dry and crispy.
Once completely dry pulverize the vegetables to a powder. You can either mix your flavors now or leave the powders separate and create the combo you desire at the time of use.
Store in clearly labeled airtight containers in a cool dark place.
"Turn the bounty of your garden or a great sale into wonderful bouillon to use in a large variety of ways."

Serving Ideas : Use vegetable bouillon powder in soups, stews, casseroles, pasta, noodles, rice,smoothies and so much more. The same goes for edible flowers.
Fruit bouillon powder can be used for smoothies (including in combination with vegetables), cakes, pies, cookies, sauces and a variety of uses.
NOTES : If using strong flavored vegetables such as Cole crops like broccoli or cabbage less is more. Too much of such strong flavors can be overwhelming when concentrated down to bouillon.
I have used things like tomato skins, the large veins from spinach, chard, lettuce and similar leafy vegetables, the tough stalks of asparagus or broccoli to make the powder thus using what would previously been wasted.
It is best to not salt or pepper your powders ahead of time so you can control how much seasoning is in each combination.
Consider adding dried and powdered herbs as well.
