Dehydrating Cantaloupe

     I recently found some Royal Cantaloupe on sale super cheap so bought some for us to eat right now and bought a few to dehydrate for us to enjoy the rest of the winter.  Cantaloupe is high in fiber, potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin A,  choline, and beta-carotene.

      Dried fruit is so yummy.  It's a great snack whenever you are hungry and goes perfectly in so many things.  Such as granola, cereal, and breakfast bars.  Dried cantaloupe is so naturally sweet and the cantaloupe taste is so amplified that you almost can't stop eating it.

      To dehydrate cantaloupe, just cut the cantaloupe in half and then scoop out the seeds.  Then cut the cantaloupe into manageable sized pieces.

     Now cut up the cantaloupe up into slices or chunks or a combination of both and then place on your dehydrator trays.

    Now just dehydrate them at 135 degrees for about 15 hours.  They take so long because they have so much moisture in them.  They are done when they feel "leathery".  Store in a canning jar and enjoy!

I also like to dehydrate Mango, Watermelon and Pears
