How To Dehydrate Pineapple recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Dehydrated pineapple is a wonderful thing. I’ve been snacking on it all week. It tastes different from the store bought and sugared varieties. The flavor is intensified through dehydration. I am really looking forward to trying this as it is in salads and possibly re-hydrated in other dishes.

Here is the process:

Slice with a knife or mandoline and try not to eat half of it as it is waiting on the counter looking so tempting. Then spread the fruit out on dehydrating trays. The tray on the left is pineapple sliced approximately 1/8″ thick. The tray on the right is sliced 1/4″ thick. Place in the machine and dehydrate until the pieces click when dropped on the counter. This took approximately 8-12 hours, depending on the thickness of my slices.

When it is fully dehydrated, transfer to jars for storage. The jar on the left is the thicker slices and the one on the right is the thinner ones. In the future, I’ll stick to the thicker slices as they were much more fun for snacking. Although, I’m thinking that the thin slices might be a fun addition to salads in the future.

    Wow! That is super cool. What is your dehydrator setup? It looks like maybe an Excalibur? I have been itching to get one. I know of a guy who use to dehydrate strawberries and kiwis, and they were the BOMB!

    If you could have seen just how sticky those counters were by the time I was finished with the pineapples, "clean" would not be the words that come to mind!

    We have an Excalibur 9 tray dehydrator. We bought it a couple months ago and we love it! We did some strawberries a while back. I still need to post that one. I haven't tried kiwis yet. I bet those are really interesting.
