Dehydrated papaya and pineapple are colorful additions to your food storage that are also very versatile. Eat them as a healthy snack alternative to processed gummies and candies, or use them in cookies, baked goods, dishes, and more.
A properly dehydrated papaya or pineapple chip will feel dry to the touch, and be slightly bendable but easily torn. A properly dehydrated papaya or pineapple cube will feel dry and “click” when dropped on the table, and be firm but chewy when eaten: like a firm gummy candy. If yours do not feel this way, just put them back in the dehydrator for a few more hours!
In the first photo, you can see crisp pineapple chips (left), chewy pineapple cube “gummies” (center), and a cinnamon-coated pineapple chip (right). In the second photo you can see pineapple used as a fun garnish for summer or late night drinks!
