Guest Blogger Jane from The Crafted Way shares this simple, easy and delish way of using up extra strawberries when they are plentiful in season. Dehydrating is a healthy and very economical way of naturally preserving fresh food. No longer do you have to throw away perishables after a few days, instead make them last with a Food Dehydrator. When purchasing a Food Dehydrator, you should look which has a timer & thermostat feature.
A dehydrator with multiple trays means that you can do lots in one go without worrying about flavour contamination. The trays are dark in colour to help foods better retain light sensitive nutrients and enzymes.
Combined with an adjustable thermostat and 26 hour time that allows for autonomous during before shutting off, this machine does it all. Perfect for fruit, vegetables, meats and yoghurts, Excalibur Dehydrator is the perfect appliance for your kitchen.
“In the early spring you can smell the fruity, heady scent of fresh strawberries at the front of my green grocer. so many strawberries, rows and rows of them, just waiting to be gobbled down. however this year i am unable to partake in this warm weather pleasure, as they disagree with lil’ mia’s tummy. so time to dust off the dehydrator and tuck some strawberry delights away for the months ahead…”
Thanks again Jane for sharing this delicious and food-saving idea with us!
