I’m sure many of you have seen these delicious looking dried strawberries on Pinterest. The person that I pinned it from says,
“strawberries dried in the oven. taste like candy but are healthy 3 hrs at 210 degrees.”
Healthy candy? Well, you just gotta try that. And it sounds easy enough, n’est pas?
So I put followed the directions, but if you’ll look at the original picture, the strawberries don’t really look cut up like the directions say. AND they look dry not juicy.
Well, when the 3 hours was up, mine were still very juicy, and I thought they were supposed to be drier, like apricots or raisins. So I just kept them in the oven until all of the moisture was gone, and this is what I ended up with.
They look a bit sad compared to the original recipe.
One kid loved them, two kids hated them, and Mama thought they were fine but too earthy, like beets.
After thinking about it a little more, I’m thinking that I should have taken them out at 3 hours and just let them sit and set up. I think they would have been plumper and still dried out if I would have done that.
I’m still a little hesitant to try them again, though, because it was a bit of a waste of a perfectly good batch of strawberries. I may try it again if they go way on sale.
Anyone else try this? Any luck?
