Dehydrating Pineapple

When I first embarked on the idea dehydrating pineapple when I was getting craving for it one day. I thought it would be much cheaper than buying a small bag or buying in bulk at $6.99 a pound. Needless to say I don't know what I was thinking. LOL. Ya see, dehydrated pineapple does not really keep it's shape like the "dried" pineapple found at the grocery store. For some reason in my mind I was thinking , "Yea! It is going to be just like the prepackaged kind for a fraction of the price."

The process of drying fruit is different than dehydrating fruit. So what I did was dehydrate it. Don't get me wrong it is still delicious and a  great little snack or topping, just not was I was wanting at that moment. So he is a brief how-to on dehydrating pineapple.

Drain pineapple from cans / jars.

Set aside juice to drink or use later.

Lay out pineapple evenly among the dehydrator trays.

Dehydrate for about 10 hours on Low (about 200 degrees)

 Once you are all done you will have something like this...

I used 4 20 ounces cans of pineapple with no sugar added. I was able to drain about 2 1/2 cups of juice and a yield of 3 cups of fruit (seen above).

Thanks for reading!
