Dried Pineapple & Cherry Flowers

Let's just say that my husband and I are really getting into our food dehydrator this year! We've dried apples and bananas and applesauce roll ups. Yesterday I decided to try pineapple and cherry flowers. Even though I dried the pineapple rings and cherries on paper towels it still took forever for the flowers to dry. I wasn't sure the cherries would stay in the center of the rings, but eventually the pineapple dried enough to hold them. Just look at them! Gorgeous! And perfect for Bud's lunch box.

Happy day!



  1. What a great idea. They look so pretty!

  2. Staci, thanks! They are soooo yummy. You should give them a try sometime. Be sure to drain the pineapple rings and marachino cherries on paper towels first to save time. It takes a long time to dry them...about 10-12 hours. And you will think that the rings will never shrink to hold the cherries but they eventually do.
