Now let’s get back to some snacking! I don’t know about your kids, but I’ve got a four year old that could live on fruit snacks. Seriously, I have to hide the box when I buy them – which is a very rare occurrence in our house because of her crazy addiction –  otherwise, she’ll try to eat every little pouch in the first hour they hit the pantry! So when I found this recipe I knew I had to give it a try. I’m happy to say they were a hit & now I just have to keep the fridge stocked with fresh strawberries!

    I baked these for 3 hours are they were still really wet & soggy (barely dehydrated). Not sure what did wrong. If I attempt again, how do you store them & for how long? Thanks.

      I find when “dehydrating” anything, all ovens are a little different, and it also varies depending on how much moisture there is (since berries can vary), and how thick they are. So it may just need more time, or to be cut thinner or spreas out more. You can store them in an airtight container, probably for a few days.
