It’s not spring yet, but in Florida they must be picking strawberries. At the bulk section at the farmer’s market a few weeks ago, I got Florida strawberries for 50 cents a pound. This week at Aldi, strawberries are 99 cents a pound. These are a stock-up prices.
If you are new to dehydrating, you should try strawberries. They dry quickly, and there is no prep work other than washing and slicing. My kids snack on dried strawberries, and I also put them in homemade granola. Dried strawberries rehydrate beautifully in oatmeal and granola bars. I just ran out from last spring, so boy was I happy when I snagged a good deal. Cut the strawberries 1/4 inch thick and dry. Easy!
