I found out that my oven turns itself off after being on for 12 consecutive hours. I had a batch of just strawberry and a batch of strawberry/kiwi. I had 3 pans in the oven over night and the strawberry batch was ready in about 10 maybe 11 hours. The strawberry/kiwi batch (2 pans) took more like 15.
Then I still had some left over so yesterday I made another batch of the strawberry/kiwi and it was ready in about 5 hours, on it’s own in the oven.
Here’s what I think:
After you’ve done your reducing of the puree – stick it in the fridge overnight. The next morning, preheat your oven to 170 or 200 – something low near there and dehydrate your cooled puree. It goes faster, or it did for me. About half the time.
** I modified the linked recipe – I only used berries, applesauce and agave nectar. Use what you have, what works for you. Have fun!
