This seems like a ridiculously extravagant idea and it certainly is if you don’t not have a whole lot of strawberries around. If you are buying them a basket at a time you are likely eating them right out of the basket, maybe even before they get out of your car. 😉 It’s only once we had a large crop out of our own garden that we even started thinking about drying them but once we tried them, we were hooked.
Dehydrated strawberries are an exceptional snack, especially for travel, and they are simply a convenient way to preserve the strawberry flavor. Like any other dried fruit, the flavor in the strawberry and its sugars concentrate nicely in the dried berry.
The method is simple, but here are some points to keep in mind:
