Strawberries!  There have been good prices on strawberries this year, so I decided to dry some in my dehydrator that I got last fall.

dehydrated strawberries are perfect for homemade instant oatmeal packs...strawberries and cream...1/2 cup oatmeal, 1-2tbsp strawberries, 1-2 tbsp sugar (vanilla sugar would be amazing in this), 1tbsp powdered milk...all tossed in a snack size baggie(ziplock or other brand)...dump in a bowl when ready to eat, add 3/4 - 1 cup water heat in microwave for about 90 secs voila instant strawberries and cream for a fraction of the cost of the store bought kind
Should take about 16 hours. According to my nesco dehydrator

You can cut them up and put them in things like muffins and bread. Strawberries don't really grow very well where I live. Too cold. :) Thanks for your comment!

How long did it take to dehydrate them? Strawberries are awesome this year! I don't have a dehydrator but I do have a gas oven. . .

It took about two days. That's what's nice about a dehydrator. You just plug it in and forget about it. I got mine at the thrift store for about five dollars, but then when you buy things like that, you have to find a place to store them, that's the only thing. :D

...Ovens are ok too, I think they just heat up your house more.
