A bowl of dehydrated fruit: the perfect snack “für zwischendurch”
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup orange juice
2 cups water
1/2 tsp sea salt
First, I cut the fruit into slices, about 1/4 inch thick. Then I marinated everything for about 10 minutes, while I got the vacuum sealer ready.
I drained the fruit and vacuum sealed it. This destroys some of the cell structure, which apparently helps the fruit absorb the marinade and also helps the dehydrating process to go a little faster. I’ve found that the vacuum sealed batches have a much better texture.
After vacuum sealing, I immediately cut the bags open again and distributed the fruit slices onto dehydrator trays. After 12h, we had perfect dehydrated bananas, apples, and kiwis.
