What's The Ideal Temperature to Use for Dehydrating Fruit?

Fruits are best dehydrated between 125°F and 135°F – any hotter than that may cause the skins of certain fruits to get crusty i.e. 'hard.'

This is known as 'case hardening' which prevents the inside of the fruit from drying properly.

Don't be tempted to turn the food dehydrator on high to speed up the process!

Fresh lemons, limes, and oranges can be washed and sliced and put on your food dehydrator with no further preparation necessary!




Preparation for Dehydrating Fruit

See the dehydrating fruit clickable pictures at the top of this page for each specific fruit.

All frozen fruits can be placed on your dehydrator trays with no further preparation – how easy is that?




An EASY Way To Loosen Frozen Fruit!

Before opening your bag of frozen fruit, throw it down onto your counter top (not too hard!) a few times to loosen any fruit that may have frozen together in a clump! If you still have a few small clumps on your dehydrator tray, run it under cold water for a few seconds and that will take care of it!

Certain fruits like bananas, apples, and strawberries, need to have a generous spraying of lemon juice. Lemon juice is a totally acceptable substitute for ascorbic acid which is used by professional dehydrating plants, and the lemon juice works wonderfully!

Two reasons for spraying with lemon juice is to prevent the fruits from darkening and to prevent bacterial growth during drying.




Dehydrated Fruit is Dry When ...

... the pieces of fruit don't stick together! Dehydrated fruits such as oranges, lemons, and limes get really dry, almost brittle. Place the fruit in airtight bags, (such as Ziploc bags), and let them hang around your kitchen for a day or overnight.

This step is known as conditioning and enables the air and any moisture in the bag to distribute evenly – so that the dehydrated fruit will be ready for vacuum sealing! Bear in mind, that some fruits will remain naturally sticky such as prunes, raisins, and dates.
