More dehydrated food yumminess
So, after dehydrating the onions, I got on a dehydrating kick and dried all kinds of things. I chopped up strawberries, bananas, pineapple and clementines (though those turned out really yucky, don’t bother!!!). The bananas you want to soak in a solution of 1 cup water with 1/4 cup lemon juice to keep from browning, but you don’t need to bother with strawberries or pineapple. I spaced them evenly and it took between 4-10 hours depending on the fruit and the size…you just have to watch them and pull out when to the consistency you want. Make sure the moisture is fully removed though, or it will get icky! My kids love them, we call them “real fruit snacks”. Here’s the pictures!!!
I had some room left in the dehydrator, so I went ahead and dried my basil and parsley. I found it was really easy to grind up by putting the dried leaves onto a paper towel, grind it up in the towel, and then use it to direct the flakes into my container. I was a little disappointed at how little I got when fully dry though… I’ll definitely need to grow more to last me through to next year.
