how to dehydrate kiwi fruit

Remember all that kiwi fruit I scored from the chicken scrap boxes last week? Well I certainly didn’t want it to go to waste and since there’s only so much kiwi I can force my family to eat before it goes bad, I dehydrated it. And man were the results tasty! Now I can throw these in a trail mix or use them as a quick healthy snack on the run.

Did you know that a kiwi fruit has more vitamin C than an orange?! Too bad the pirates didn’t know about this, I bet it could have prevented a few cases of scurvy.

How to Dehydrate Kiwi

Wash kiwi, trim the brown peel from the outer edge, and cut into slices 1/4-1/2 inch thick {an egg slicer makes this step super easy!}. The thinner the slices, the quicker the kiwifruit will dehydrate.

Arrange slices in a single layer on the dehydrator tray. Cover & set dehydrator to 135 degrees.

Check the kiwifruit slices after six hours. Dehydrated kiwifruit slices will not be crisp like banana chips but bendable and a wee bit chewy. They can take anywhere from 6-12 hours to dehydrate.

Have you ever tried dried kiwifruit before? The Girl Who Thinks She’s a bird really like it. But then again, I don’t think there is a dried fruit she doesn’t like. ;)

  1. Dehydrate zucchini for zucchini chips. Sprinkle salt or other seasoning before drying. Yumm.

  2. So I clicked over to your Amazon link for the dehydrator and saw that there is one made by Ronco which would have to be a great choice since it would slice and dice…….:)
