What I Did: These gooey gummy strawberries looked so good, I was so excited to try this recipe, especially since it said they were “better than twizzlers.” So I cut up two whole containers of fresh strawberries, and followed the recipe: Bake at 210 degrees for 3 hours. After 3 hours, they looked exactly the same, only warm. So I let them sit in there at 210 for 2 more hours, then 3 more, and after 8 hours they refused to dehydrate – they were still wet, sitting in puddles of their own juices, but turned black around the edges. They were bitter, burned, and mushy tasting. Fail!!
Next Time I Will: This recipe can’t be saved – the only real way to dehydrate strawberries is in a food dehydrator. I wish the people who spam that recipe all over Pinterest would be forced to remove them all… I’m sure this exact same thing has happened to lots of other people!
