Now the second test for the food dehydrator:
Test 2: Can it dry cherries?
Answer: Yes! Very easily!
I washed, pitted (used an Oxo cherry piter- worked great!), cut in half and stuck in the food dehydrator. First at 145F for like an hour, and then let it go at 135F for about 6 hours.
They turned out beautifully! They were delicious! Theresa and I ate most of them…… so we will have to make some more in the near future.
We also pitted and froze down the rest of the cherries we had gotten from the farmers market.
I also tried to dry some whole blueberries. They were frozen, and it seems like it is taking a long time- we’re approaching 10 hours. I’ll let you know how that goes.
