Dried Strawberries 2013

Paul picked 9 more quarts of strawberries last Wednesday. So that afternoon I spent 4 hours cutting & arranging the slices onto our Excalibur’s shelves. They dried for 12 hours at 135°. I think they taste like pieces of fruit roll-ups, but better because there’s no added sugar! Drying the fruit captures & accentuates the natural sweetness of the berry. And it only takes a pinch of slices to add to a bowl of granola or throw in a smoothie. 🙂

It’s certainly a “labor of love”, though – a yucky, sticky mess, but I’m ok with doing it ONCE-A-YEAR, lol. 🙂
