Check out my newest dehydrated food. Cranberries! While shopping at the market I noticed that bags of fresh cranberries were on sale for $1.00. I thought why not give it a try to dehydrate them. My whole family loves snacking on dried cranberries. We also love them in our oatmeal and cookies.
All you need is a dehydrator - cranberries & honey.
One bag of fresh cranberries makes about one cup of dried cranberries.
I covered the cranberries with a small amount of honey then used my Nesco Dehydrator to dehydrate them. It took about 24 hours to get the cranberries dried. My dehydrator will dry up to 12 trays. I like using lots of trays - makes it easy to dehydrate quite a lot of product at one time.I have a been dehydrating my own fruits and veggies for over a year. Great way to make healthy snacks and save lots of money.
Now is the perfect time to purchase fresh cranberries ~ they are on sale.
