2 lbs strawberries
Use organic or local berries when you can, although for this recipe, I used what was fresh and on sale. Produce in season is usually the best quality for the best price. Wash and hull the berries, then slice them a 1/4 inch thick. Lay them out on dehydrator sheets. Set your dehydrator to 120 degrees and leave them to dry over night. Dry the strawberries only until they are flexible. They should be the texture of fruit leather, with just a bit of moisture. Store in airtight jars or glass containers. Makes one quart.
