I finally used my dehydrator that Gar gave me last year for something other than beef jerky. Dehydrated strawberries and bananas are a great yummy and chewy snack. I feel like dehydrated and freeze dried strawberries are basically on par. The dehydrated banana, however, is far superior to the freeze dried banana chip due to its intense banana and slightly caramelized flavor. There is so much more I want to do with the dehydrator. Maybe next year I’ll find time for making fruit leather.
I just cannot get enough of dipping food in chocolate. After the apples I couldn’t wait to get more chocolate to melt. I could’ve made tuxedo strawberries since I had the white chocolate bar and the semi-sweet chips but that would require more work and I try to be nice to my dishwasher since it’s always so nice to me.
