We finally got a dehydrator. It goes without saying that we love our new dehydrator. Exhibit A: dehydrated watermelon.
It’s as simple as thinly slicing watermelon (1/4″) and lining the trays of your dehydrator with them. It took about 36-48 hours on the fruit setting (135 degrees) to get them nice and crispy. They taste like watermelon, but different. They taste like crunchy, sweet summer.
My hope is that we can make these last until, say, February when we are dying for spring to begin and dreaming about summer.
Levi decided to experiment with re-hydrating the dehydrated watermelon. The result? Okay, that was kind of gross.
