Fill Four Full Trays
With Fruit
On Your Dehydrator

An Easy Guide for Fruit

To fill four full trays of fruit, now that you have your dehydrator ready, it does help to know how much fruit to purchase at the store if your budget doesn't allow for buying in bulk.

Most of us do not have tons of spare room in our fridges and freezers.

Before you go out buying too much, here's a handy guide that shows how much fruit will fit on four dehydrator trays.

Please remember this is just a guide. It's not an exact science...

As mentioned in the dehydrator section, I do have an Excalibur dehydrator and a Nesco dehydrator.
I use the Nesco on a daily/weekly basis, and the Excalibur is great for proofing bread!
