Dehydrated strawberries are fantastic on cereals both hot o cold or, as a crisp and healthy hiking snack, or in a delicious sauce for your sweet treat on the trail. They are the perfect ingredient for gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free backpacking meals.
How to dehydrate strawberries
Wash and rinse strawberries under cool running water. Remove and discard green cups.
Slice about 1/2 inch so they aren’t too thin and fragile once dried.
Arrange sliced strawberries on dehydrator trays in a single layer.
Dry at 135F/57C for 6-14 hours (depends on dehydrator type) until leathery or crispy dry (as you like).
Store dried, cooled fruits in airtight containers or ziplock bags away from direct light or heat.
