Dehydrating Strawberries

       Strawberries are so sweet and delicious but they are not always readily available so that is why I love to dehydrate them so I can enjoy them all year long.  Dehydrating them does not reduce their vitamin content and drying them properly makes them last up to a few years on your shelf (if stored properly).  And dehydrated strawberries take up way less space than canning them does.

     To dehydrate strawberries, wash and hull the strawberries.  Then slice them.  Now just arrange the berries on your dehydrator trays.  

Turn on your dehydrator and dehydrate them for about 8 hours at 135 degrees.  When they are done, they are pliable and leathery.  When they are completely dried, just remove them and store in a mason jar.

       Dehydrated strawberries are great in granola, trail mix, on cereal, or even as a healthy snack.  They taste almost like candy, but even better!  You can rehydrate them by soaking in water for about 30 minutes and then you can use them in smoothies or sauces.  

I also like to dehydrate apples with cinnamon and to dehydrate kiwis
