My mom gave me a honking huge dehydrator. I made dehydrated pineapple, blueberries, strawberries, apples, and bananas. It was all delicious. The blueberries made a big mess, though. I was worried about how long to leave them in there but I just kept "checking on them". I was actually just eating them. I was paranoid that the bananas would turn out like banana chips (yuck) but I guess you really have to try hard to turn them into pucks. I read pineapple takes 12 hours to dehydrate but I think I only did 8 hours because I wanted to go to bed. They are probably not going to last as long as thoroughly dehydrated pineapples but I wasn't planning on storing them for long term. And that's my first experience with a food dehydrator. I'm going to try to make fruit leather next.
