We bought a lot....above is the first trip...we made several more! We used our dehydrator for some pinapple snacks...first cutting the outer peel off...
Then quartered it and cut the core out...
Then we sliced it up and laid on the trays...(must get more trays for bigger batches SOON)...then we let it dry away for 12-15 hours. Some family members like it at the 12 hour mark...I like the long term storage part so I like it more towards 15 hours. It is crispier, but softens quickly as you chew. Makes a great snack!!
I got all 3 batches ready....strawberry...strawberry pineapple....pineapple. (I used the sure-jell recipes for cooked jam)
I ended up with 24 jars of jam...plenty to see us through the year and give away as gifts.
Next we tried something new and dehydrated some strawberries for snacks.
This is what 5 quarts of strawberries dries down to after 8 hours.
We did quite a few batches....
We made one more strawberry run to the store before the sale was up and made strawberry banana jam. I think we got our monies worth on this sale.
What are your favorite strawberry or pineapple recipes?
