Get that shrinking feeling...

So it's spring, and there is all sorts of wonderful fruit in the shops. Strawberries, succulent and sweet are at their best and stone fruit is starting to appear.

The season just flies past and its vital to take advantage of all this wonderful fruit while it is there. So its time to whip out the dehydrator and get drying!

2 kilos of strawberries becomes a single soup bowl of delicious crunchy slivers, ready to be munched as is, or cooked up in a recipe. They keep for months too, allowing you to enjoy the taste of spring all the way through the year.

Great idea. I just picked up a box of wonderful strawberries and am planning on going back for more. I usually stem and freeze them (to turn into blended drinks and jam), but I may have to dehydrate some.

Great idea, as the summer fruit is again making its appearsnce in the stores and street shops here in Toronto.

I'm looking forward to perusing your blog and the comments on recipes.
