Dehydrating Fruit!! Its really easy, all you have to do is cut it up and put it in the dehydrator. It makes a great snack because it is just the fruit and no added sugar or anything like that! Problem is we go through it so fast I cant keep up with making it!

We did this when I was a kid -- and it was the best ever! Great work on staying healthy for your baby!

Hey Keri, how do you cut the whole pineapple to dehydrate? I have some on the counter to dehydrate, but I don't know how to do slices =)! Thanks in advance!

I cut the top and the bottom off of the pineapple, then I stand it up and slice off the skin. Then I turn it on its side and cut into slices. Then with each slice you cut out the core. Then you should be left with pineapple rings. You can dehydrate it as rings or you can cut those rings into wedges? Does that make sense? I dont really know why but both times I have done pineapple they have turned a little brown on some of the edges. You wouldnt think it would because of the acidity. Oh and homemade dried pineapple is alot different than store bought pineapple. You should try strawberries and bananas though, both of those are way better than the store bought kind.
