Going bananas


I had 6 ripe bananas languishing in the fruit bowl.  For some reason I've not felt like eating them this week.  Normally I'd pop them into the freezer to avoid wasting them (I use them for smoothies) but thought this would be a good chance to try out my dehydrator.  Thanks to Pinterest I found some specific instructions.

I sliced them then tossed them in a 1 part apple cider vinegar 4 parts water mixture (I didn't have any lemon juice) then arranged them in 3 of the layers.


I'm not sure yet how long they'll take as my instruction manual helpfully says 8 to 38 hours for banana slices!!!  Pinterest suggests less time than that.  Apparently I can't over dry them so fingers crossed.

The Teenager has just arrived home and declared the kitchen smells banana-y.  Yummmm!

  1. That's an interesting toy, a dehydrator.

  2. To Anna of the Mutton Years - I can think of more interesting toys!! But seriously, I am keen to know how your bananas work out - I might be tempted to buy a dehydrator. Anna
