Drying Fruits at Home: Cranberries

I had some leftover fresh cranberries that I did not use during the holidays, but I wanted to preserve them to add to my baking and mixed dried fruit snacks. To do this I decided to dehydrate them.


How to Make Dehydrated Cranberries

1.     Wash and drain cranberries.
2.     Put into boiling water until skins rupture.
3.     Drain.
4.     Sprinkle cranberries with sugar, about ¼ cup of sugar per 12 ounces of cranberries.
5.     Let sit for about 30 minutes to drain even more liquid.

6.     Place on dehydrator trays to dehydrate from 12-24 hours depending on humidity in your area.

7.     Dehydrated cranberries should be chewy, leathery and dry to the touch.
8.     Store in air tight container.
