Many years ago, when I first got my dehydrator I went crazy dehydrating practically everything. But my favorite things to dehydrate were fruit, especially strawberries. How to Dehydrate Strawberries is an easy tutorial recipe for making delicious dried strawberries in a dehydrator.
I love to buy cases of strawberries during the spring and summer. Then I prepare them so they last all year long.
How to Dehydrate Strawberries
- Strawberries, 32 ounces
- Dehydrator, I use this Nesco Dehydrator
- Wash strawberries.
- Cut strawberries into halves, quarters, or slices.
- Lay strawberries in rows onto tray, make sure they do not overlap.
- Repeat until all strawberries are used.
- Stack trays on top of the bottom and place the lid on top.
- Set the dehydrator to manufacturer’s instructions, about 135 degrees.
- Dehydrate for 6-12 hours.
- Check for doneness at 6 hours. Check to see if the strawberries are still moist, juicy, or sticky. The strawberries should be done if they are leathery and pliable.
- Store the dehydrated strawberries in an airtight container.
- The sliced strawberries took 6 hours.
- While the quartered strawberries took 9 hours.
- The halves took the longest at 11 hours.
My kiddos and I love having dehydrated strawberries available for snacking, mixing in with our granola, and adding to some trail mix. I’m even thinking about making some other treats with the dehydrated strawberries.
Have you ever dehydrated strawberries? What are your favorite ways to eat them?
Have a great day!
