How to Dehydrate Watermelon – How to Make Watermelon Candy

First of all, you people are CRAZY!

Yesterday I asked…

“If you suddenly found yourself with 15 FREE watermelon halves, what would you do with them?

Never, in a million years, would I have thought you’d suggest I dehydrate a bunch of watermelon to make watermelon candy.

Here is how to do it –

  • Slice watermelon 1/2 -inch thick and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Lay watermelon on dehydrator trays
  • Dehydrate on the “fruits and vegetables” setting {135 degrees on mine} for 6-8 hours
  • Let cool, then store in an air tight container

My teenagers thought this watermelon candy was wicked good, and yours probably will too!

Peace Out Girl Scouts,

Enjoy the day!

    My procrastinating finally paid off. We had a potluck at work today for the 4th and there is a whole platter of watermelon in the fridge! Woot woot! Ate….a few…slices overnight. I brought corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and lettuce salad fixings….all free from my reclaimed produce!

    Bought a melon. Chopped it up. Dehydrated the whole thing, intending to surprise the kids… the surprise was on me – they HATED IT!!!!!!

    (I didn’t like it either…)
