Strawberries and the new Dehydrator

You may remember the dehydrator we were able to get this winter because of an arrangement I made with CSN stores. You know, the online store that offers everything from Lighting to, well, to dehydrators for instance. We've used the dehydrator a couple of times so far for jerky, but now we have fresh strawberries that we wanted to be able to use for things later this year and decided we wanted to test out dehydrating them.
The strawberries weren't huge, so I cut them right down the middles and lay them flat after a quick dip in a citric acid bath (To preserve color and flavor.)
They really thinned out quite a bit, but the flavor is like.. POW! STRAWBERRY! These will be great in some recipe or on dry cereal.

But of course when the strawberries are fresh for that little window of the year, you have to have some fresh! When A~ makes fresh sourdough waffles (Yeah you heard that right, sourdough waffles.) nothings better on top than a little whip cream and fresh strawberries.

Maybe if we ask real nice we can get A~ to start blogging on here with some of her great recipe's? I think I've almost got her conviced... anyone else out there want to hear fromthe other (read: better) half of this equation?

Take care all.

I have the same dehydrator and mine's humming away 24/7. We're big on the fruit leather and "sundried" tomatoes. ;)

Recipes are most welcome. Gardening is great but now I have to figure out what to do with it all :o)

Hundred and even just tens of years ago, like minded people would always swap stories and ideas and the World had these things called communities.

I think the swapping/passing on of any kind of information is a great idea. I love the idea that people that may never meet or even be on the same continent are able to provide advice and help one another.

It makes me think there is still hope for the shaved monkey.
