Candied Strawberries

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, yogurt, or even on top of breakfast cereal.

Your Key Ingredient:

NESCO Dehydrator
NESCO Clean-A-Screen

Grocery Ingredients:

1 lb fresh strawberries
3 oz strawberry gelatin
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Or substitute:
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice

 

Instructions:

  1. Wash strawberries and remove stems. Slice thinly.
  2. Sprinkle lightly with strawberry gelatin and powdered sugar, or dip in honey and lemon juice mixture. Honey/lemon yields chewy berries while strawberry gelatin/powdered sugar results in crunchy berries, similar to those found in store-bought cereal.
  3. Place slices on NESCO® Clean-A-Screens and place on your NESCO® Dehydrator trays.
  4. Dry 4 hours at 135° F until crisp.
