How to make your own dried strawberries … kitchen helper
If you’re looking for a tasty and healthy snack, try dried strawberries. These little gems are low in calories, sweet and super-easy to make at home. They can be used in a variety of ways, from just eating them as they are to adding them to biscuits, smoothies, scones, muesli, muffins, biscotti or salads. Pair them with other dried fruit for a homemade trail mix, or serve them as a snack with nuts. If you’re making chocolate bark, they bring a beautiful flavour and pop of colour and you can also blitz them to make a strawberry powder to use in frosting and cakes. Making your own dried strawberries is as simple as chopping them in half, laying on a lined baking tray with the cut sides up and popping in a 90C oven. Let them cook for 2 hours, then flip then and return to the oven for another hour. Store dried strawberries in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 3 months.
