How To Make: Healthy Dehydrated Fruits


Dried fruit is a healthy option for those who like sweets and want to avoid all that refined sugar from candies and chocolate. Surely, fruits contain sugar too, but they are not that harmful as the sugar from store-bought sweets. Also dried fruit that you can buy from a store can be quite expensive, so why not make a cheaper version at home that is even more delicious. You will only need some fruits and an oven to make dried fruits. If you have a fruit dehydrator your task is simpler, but an oven will do too.

  2. Alex says:

    Thanks for this post. I am wondering, however, if you believe that a convection could be used as a successful replacement?

    • Iain says:

      Yes, you can use a convection oven to dehydrate. They work extremely well. Just use the lowest temperature your oven will go to (Mine for instance goes to 170 f). You will have to experiment with times, but they work very well.

  3. Ana says:

    There is no information here – just “buy a dehydrator – stick food in it.” This is not worthy of publication.

    • Ann says:

      Click on the link Healthy Dehydrated Fruit – Directions by Housing A Forest…. under the orange slices picture. hope that helped

    • Lorax says:

      exactly what I was thinking, no temps, no time, no “flip or don’t flip” type of instructions etc. pointless. good thing I already have a dehydrator haha

    • INEKE says:

      yes I agree ! no information at all !!

    • Robert says:

      Yeah, looks more like an ad for a dehydrator than a useful article.

    • jim foreman says:

      There is a link on the bottom. All the details are there

    • American patriot says:

      Agree. They should publish ways to do it using no electricity. My wife lays the trays out in our spare car. On those hot summer days a car with the windows cracked open 1 inch dries the fruit just as fast as one of those fancy electric dehydrators.

    Maybe it’s meant to spark an idea you negative shit. Need someone to show you how to clean your own ass too?

    • Your Mother says:

      Now, now, there’s no reason to be rude and use bad language. What are you, a negative nelly? Really, dear, if you changed your attitude and acted more like a lady, you might find that the world will respond to you in a more positive manner. As it is, I am tempted to bash your face in with my purse.

  5. bart says:

    Yeah, where are the instructions? What temperature? what time? Disappointing article i must say.

  6. bart says:

    Also on Housing a Forest there are no oven temperature instructions.

  7. Jola says:

    You can find the proper temps for drying fruits on Pinterst , may vary depending on your oven
    Hope this is helpful

  8. echoes says:

    An advertisement for dehydrators. Tricked again. Sigh. Waste of time.

  9. Lynnette says:

    yeah..this kind of stuff pisses me off! I want to make in the oven! You say we can but don’t tell how..just BUY something!!!!!!!!!

  10. Pete says:

    225 for two hours

  11. Michie says:

    Thanks for the reminder – I’ll need to make some soon…they look fantastic in those jars 🙂

  12. sherri says:

    Look up Alton Brown’s homemade dehydrator. It uses a box fan and paper air filters.

  13. Sharon says:

    Look below the oranges, there is a link to the actual page that gives you directions on dehydrating the fruits.

  14. mary martinez says:

    Gracias por facilitar esta pag traduciendo al español soy feliz

  15. Sharon Barnes says:

    I don’t think those fruits in the jars are the right color. They look fresh, not dehydrated to me. I also find that mason jars let in light which contributed to deterioration in drhydrated fruits.

  16. Hater of most says:

    All these negative comments. Feeble people, just experiment. If you can’t figure it out you should stick to buying dried fruit at the store.

  17. Jane says:

    Por favor tem como mandar tradução… Sou do Brasil.. não sei Inglês… Grata

  18. terra says:

    I find this article published in April 2015 to be extremely uninformative. There is virtually zero instructions on how to prepare, slice, pre treat, spice or herb add, and conditioning of dried fruits. What you presented was a group of “pretty ” pictures. Sad, very sad indeed. Not what I expected at all from your website. This is more of an infomercial than true how to. RC

  19. Lori says:

    So… where’s the ‘how’ part?

  20. Denise says:

    Bwahahaha, I was thinking the same thing. So many people with negative comments, look it up or how about this but a freaking book in canning and read.

  21. Rob says:

    Click on the directions link at the end of the article people. Everyone seems to have missed that simple step.
