One of our most favorite snacks would have to be dried fruit. It accompanies mixed nuts like no other and tastes so good! I've yearned to dehydrate my own fruit for a few years and now thanks to my wondrous husband I can use my Excaliber and dehydrate until my heart is content. A gift that keeps on giving!
This process is EMPOWERING, economical and healthy! One can preserve food, have ready to eat snacks on hand for those "on the go" moments or when you just want something easy and yummy to snack on. I love that I get to choose what is going into our bodies. We are eating less sulfates and added sugar. The next best thing will be picking it from the garden and then dehydrating it....ooh I can't wait!
Step One: Start with some fresh fruit!
Step Two: Slice and lay on the trays! Easy as pie!
Step 3: Turn it on to 135 degrees or 105 to opt for raw and go about your day as you normally would. If you are up for it take a moment to dance to Omar's Chocco for all the fine work you did!!!
After hours of dehydration the end results are SURE to please! The hardest part.....not eating it all!
Enjoy banana chips....

And even....a homemade fruit roll up or fruit leather!
and don't forget to share the love...!
