Here are some photos of the pineapples getting chopped up and dehydrated. They are delicious and oh so sweet dried.
So far I’ve gone through 3, and we’ve eaten two fresh. Three more to go.
Some of you may not be familiar with the type of drying rack that we have. Our drying racks are circular metal shelves with mesh bottoms. They stack on top of a bottom piece that contains a heating element and a metal fan. When plugged in the heat rises, causing the fan to turn slowly. The heat dries the fruit stacked above and the fan creates enough air circulation to prevent mold. Simple and perfect.
I soak the drying racks if they have bits of dried fruit stuck to them. After a quick soak the dried fruit just come right off.
And of course, the ever-present baby.
Have a good night. Details on strawberry jam to be posted soon.
