1

WASH AND DRY THE CRANBERRIES  When you get your fresh cranberries, give them a good wash and dry them thoroughly.

2

PLACE CRANBERRIES ON FOOD DEHYDRATOR TRAYS Lay the cranberries out onto a food dehydrator tray and don’t overcrowd them.

It’s actually best if you put down some parchment paper or a tray liner first, so that if there is shrinkage they won’t fall through the tray holes.

3

START THE FOOD DEHYDRATOR You’ll want to set your food dehydrator to 140-150 degrees Fahrenheit to dry the cranberries.

4

WATCH AND WAIT Keep a very close eye on the fruit in the dehydrator. If you have other fruit, like oranges and apples, I recommend checking those every hour or so.
