You Pick 'em Farms!

Obtaining strawberries fresh from "You Pick 'Em" farms, is probably the best way to go of obtaining sweet big strawberries ... so long as you don't 'put your back out' bending down!

It's a great activity for the kids (read: have the kids do the bending down!)

Dehydrating Strawberries is Easy!

Let's get going with dehydrating 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.
