Dehydrating Strawberries is Easy!

Let's get going with dehydrating strawberries:

Dehydrated Strawberries

If using frozen strawberries, slice them when they are partially thawed – then go to step 2.

  1. Wash fresh strawberries, cut off the top, and cut into 1/4" slices or into halves
  2. If you decided to simply cut your strawberries in half, place them on your food dehydrator trays with the cut-side up to prevent drips on the lower trays!
  3. Turn on your dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F
    (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
  • Drying time: between 6-15 hours.
  • Dehydrated strawberries will be crisp and leathery when dried.
  • Remember to rotate your food dehydrator trays, for even drying.

How about this (it's a great way to get your vitamins) – start eating more fresh fruit and take less vitamin pills! The body needs the "good carbs" and NOT the "refined carbs" that are prevalent in cookies, cakes, and pasta – and bread.

Add strawberries to morning smoothies – delish!
