Dried Strawberries

I’ve been experimenting with healthy snacks again….because as tasty as spoonfuls of Nutella can be, I really need to eat a little better! So I tried making my own dried strawberries!


It’s a pretty simple process – you just hull a bunch of strawberries, and throw them in the oven at 210 degrees for three hours! They taste amazingly good!! Almost like candy 🙂


I made two batches; the first batch I cut the strawberries in half, the second batch I left the strawberries whole. I think I liked the halved strawberries best! They almost tasted like chewy strawberry Twizzlers….I will definitely be making these again.

  1. I just did this and it totally did not turn out. At all. Not even kind of. Strawberries are expensive. My mouth has been watering because they smelled so delightful. Now I’m sad because I pulled a tray of little black chalky bits that looked like doo doo. What could I have possible done wrong?!!! I’m so mad! This was how I was gonna kick my severe licorice addiction!!!! Aaaaacccckkkk! Fresh strawberries, halved at 210 for 3 hours? Right? Right? Nope. Something went horribly wrong. Horribly.

    1. I’m so sorry! It could be a lot of things, like the type of strawberry, the ripeness, the size….Maybe yours were too small? Or not as juicy? If you try again, I’d say watch them throughout the baking process to make sure they don’t overcook, and to try to use larger peices of strawberries or larger strawberries. Hopefully that will help! You could always try cook them on a lower temperature too? Those would be my suggestions!

  2. Going to try this. I have an Excaliber dehydrator and I will use that. I do apple slices and bananas all the time. Have done cherry tomatoes with a lot of success too. 🙂

Let me know what you think!
