Lock in that delicious seasonal flavor. The taste of the warmer months is never far away with these dehydrated strawberries. Pimms anyone?


  • 500g fresh, ripe strawberries


  1. Wash and pat dry strawberries with a paper towel.
  2. Remove the core of each strawberry and cut it into 2-3mm slices using a small sharp knife.
  3. Lay strawberry slices flat in a single layer without touching on the dehydrator trays.
  4.  Turn the dehydrator on to the dried fruit setting (normally the lowest setting or approx. 52C) and leave to dry for 8 -10 hours or until there is not a hint of moisture. Depending on the size of your strawberries they might need less or more time to dehydrate. After 6 hours, I check on them hourly and asses if the dehydrated berries are ready or not.
  5. Once cool and at room temperature, store in an airtight container.


The best way to store dried figs for long-term storage is simply in a Mason jar or airtight container in a cool dark place. I use Kilner preserving jars to store my dried fruit. Clip-top jars with a rubber seal are great for keeping food airtight. After a day or two, check for any excess moisture in the jars, a continue to check each day for the next week. 

Dehydrated strawberries last up to 6 months if dehydrated and stored correctly.
