Cabela’s 10 tray digital dehydrator! on sale!
We had a bunch of organic strawberries that we weren’t going to eat in time. So today at their peak ripeness we dehydrated them. SO easy!
-slice with your handy dandy egg slicer! I used my Pampered Chef egg slicer. It cuts them perfectly, saves a ton of time and is easy clean up. If you don’t have an egg slicer I recommend slicing them no more than a 1/4 inch thick.
-at this point I heat up my dehydrator. I set it to 130 degrees for 6 hours. Everyone’s dehydrator is different so I set mine shy of suggested times so I can check on them and adjust the timer. I ended up leaving them in for a total of 9 hours.
-place the strawberries on the trays. Be sure to space them evenly without overlap. Like this:
I store most dehydrated fruits/veggies in mason jars. For long term storage I suggest oxygen absorbers. Ours won’t last more than a few days so I store them in the freezer. It keeps them crunchy and is a nice treat on crazy hot days!
