My daughter is a grazer… usually I don’t mind but when I keep finding half-eaten fruit in the dark recesses of the fridge I cringe. I really just don’t like seeing food go to waste… So, I trick my kids into eating it anyway!
Slice the fruit as thinly as possible (an apple slinky machine works great for this)
Spread out evenly on a lined oven tray, or, if you’re lucky enough to own one, the shelves of your food dehydrator.
Bake at the lowest your oven will go (mine does 50˙C! Yay!) until leathery. Depending on the fruit, this will take up to 12 hours. Remember to turn the fruit occasionally and to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn down your house. That would be bad.
So far I have successfully dried mango, apple, pear, peach and banana. The kids love the dried fruit and I’m happy because there is less wastage. Happy days…
