Eight Pineapples

Yes, eight pineapples. These were on sale for $1 each, and I did the thrifty thing and bought eight of them to make into dried pineapple.

We have two matching circular dehydrators that do a great job turning fruit into dried fruit. Later today, after we return from a picnic, I will skin and slice these pineapples and lay the pieces on the dehydrator shelves. In a few days I hope to have 2 or 3 quart jars of dried pineapple for my family to feast on.

The dream is always that it will last for several months, but dried fruit is so tasty that it tends to get eaten up fast. Either way, I’m providing a healthy, homemade snack for my family, and on the cheap!

    Wow! What a fabulous deal. Be sure to post about the dehydration process. I’m very interested in learning different ways to preserve foods. The plan this year was to implement the dehydrator a bit, but I’m not sure how that’s going to work out. We’ve been finding all sorts of canning recipes that look really great. We may run out of fruits and vegetables before even getting the dehydrator out of storage!!

What'd ya think?
