How to Dry Strawberries ~ preserve these precious spring berries long after the season has passed with this easy dehydrating technique.

Wash and dry your berries. Hull them, or slice off the green tops.
Slice the berries about 1/8 inch thick. Try to get the slices as even as you can so that they dry evenly.
Arrange the sliced strawberries on dehydrator trays, making sure they are not touching. This helps airflow and allows them to dry properly.
Set dehydrator to 135 F (this is standard for fruits and vegetables, but be sure to follow your manufacturer's instructions for fruit/veggies) and allow to dry for 6-10 hours (the source I used suggested 8-10 hours, but mine seemed done by about 6, so I suggest checking them after about 5 or 6 hours and seeing how long they need). They should feel very dry, but not quite brittle, and there should be no noticeable moisture when you break them apart.
