Can you dry pineapple?

You can easily slice store-bought pineapple and prepare it for drying in just a few moments. You can dry the pineapple in an oven or dehydrator and store it in a cool, dry location for several months.

This is how to dry pineapple.

Place one layer of pineapple slices on the dehydrator tray. To ensure that the fruit is dry, dehydrate it at 135F for 12-16 hours. When the pineapple is dry, it will be firm, chewy, and lightly sticky. Vacuum seal the pineapple and place in freezer bags.

Is dried pineapple good for you? Dried pineapple is a great source of dietary fibre and antioxidants. Dried pineapple contains a lot of dietary fiber, insoluble fiber. Two grams of dietary fiber are contained in each serving of dried pineapple.

This begs the question: How long will dehydrated pineapple keep good shape?

3 to 4 Days

How can you dry pineapple in the microwave oven?

Here's what I did:

  1. Slice the fruit into thin slices.
  2. You will be placing your fruit directly onto the rotating plate in the microwave.
  3. Place the fruit slices on a microwave plate. Give them a little breathing room (at most an inch or so).
  4. The timer should be set for 30 minutes
  5. But not so quickly!
