Dehydrating fruit not only helps it keep longer but can be a really tasty snack. I went on a little dehydrating spree the other day and thought I’d share with you.
We got some strawberries on sale that had to be used immediately. I love baking with small dried strawberries so instead of slicing them, I went ahead and cut them into smaller chunks. These shrink down quite a bit when they’re dried so don’t worry about getting them too small.
Hull strawberries and cut lengthwise into slices or chunks about 1/4″ thick. Place on mesh drying trays. I like to use the “Clean-A-Screen” flexible liners on the trays with strawberries for easier removal.
Drying Time and Temperature:
I usually just dry things overnight. By morning, they’re done. The pieces should feel dry, leathery, and slightly flexible.
