How to Dehydrate Mango

     My boys love mangoes but since we live in rural SE Oklahoma outside of a tiny community, mangoes are not so easily found.  If we can't find fresh mangoes, my boys beg me to buy the dried variety.  The only problem with the dried variety you can buy is that they are expensive and they contain sulfites and other preservatives.  Um, no thank you.

       Dried mangoes are not only easy to make but they turn out super sweet and make a healthy snack!  Once you dry mangoes, you'll never buy them again because the taste truly does not compare!

     To dehydrate mango, begin by thoroughly washing the skin.  Once they have been thoroughly rinsed with cool water, cut off each end of the mango.

    Sit the mango up and using a sharp knife begin cutting off the peel of the mango.  

   After all of the peel has been removed, cut up the mango into "sections" as shown in the below photo and place the pieces onto your dehydrator trays.

     Set your dehydrator to 135 degrees and dehdyrate the slices for 12-14 hours. 

Store the dried pieces in a canning jar until ready to eat.  Dried mangoes can be eaten as they are or they can be tossed into a salad, a smoothie or used in baked goods.
