I refuse to buy processed kids snacks, especially during the summer. I tend to buy in bulk and case quantity. last week we picked up 2 cases of pineapple, A FAVORITE in our household. They were FINALLY ripe
I used my slicer and then I have even thickness and no skins on them. I can easily cut them into smaller, bite-sized pieces too.
I place them on my dehydrator trays (I have the Excalibur dehydrator… LOVE IT!) and put on about 125 degrees… It takes longer, but they taste so much better.
These are the BEST snacks and can be added to trail mix, oatmeal and even cakes and cookies (if you grind them smaller)
***NOTE: I DO NOT sugar coat these like the ones that you get at the store. If you over dehydrate, they are hard to eat and turn brown.
