Candied Strawberries

Not sure what to do with all of your leftover summer pickings? Our Candied Strawberries recipe is the perfect solution. After sprinkling sliced berries with just a bit of sweetener, let your NESCO Dehydrator do the work. We love this crispy snack in trail mix, desserts, or even on top of breakfast cereal.
