Do It Yourself Dried Mangoes

I bought a food dehydrator so I can dry my herbs and some fruits in season. Yesterday was my first time to try  drying  some mangoes.  Mangoes are in season and very cheap in the  store for only 49 cents a piece. So I sliced 9 mangoes thinly and dehydrate them for about 10 hours. I thought I did good on my first dried mango,  it turnd out too dry and crisp. I had a mango chips instead  of a candied dried mango that my husband loves to munch.

The mango chip is good, a little bit crunchy and I love it, except that  my husband will not enjoy it, so this morning, I made another batch. I still have 3 mangoes left and an apple. Will try to dehydrate them for 5 to 8 hours only and see if I will make it right this time. I made a thicker and bigger sliced. The apple, I sliced it thinly, squeezed some lime juice to stop it from browning, drain and added some cinnamon powder for flavor.


If  have a lots of fruits on your hands,  try drying them out.  Dried fruits are delicious, healthy snacks that can be stored for a long time.
