Oven Dried Strawberries - A Tasty Fix for Too Many Berries and Not Enough Time To Use 'Em

Last weekend we went strawberry picking, and it was good times. But now the race is on: use the strawberries or watch our hard work wither away. While browsing a post on dehydrating tomatoes, it occurred to me: why not dry some strawberries? Turns out, all you need is your oven and a bunch of time. This article explains it all.

Though, there's isn't much to explain: slice, spread, "bake" for 3 hours at 200 degrees, take out, enjoy. (OK, there's a little more to that. Go read the article.)

I've got to say, the experiment went well. The process was not hard to do and the resulting strawberries are tasty. Well, maybe not as tasty as fresh strawberries, but still a yummy snack and infinitely better than throwing out moldy strawberries. The only catch: all my drying produced the tiniest Tupperware container full of berries.

Drying: it's the new freezing.
