Dried Strawberries

King Soopers is selling strawberries for a buck a pound, not a bad deal, so we’ve dried sixteen pounds, with another eight to go.

Pictured here are eight pounds of strawberries loaded into a large Excalibur Dehydrator. As you can see, this yielded nine cups of dried strawberries, perfect out of the jar, on salads, etc.

(We have so much work to do on the house, yard, and garden over the summer that I’ll probably blog more about that and less about cultural and political issues for a while. We also planted 48 tomato plants yesterday, and I’m a bit sore from digging holes.)
