Dried kiwi is way better than sweet-and-sour conventional candy- no stomachache afterward, no artificial dyes, and it’s easy to make yourself!
To dry kiwi
- Rinse kiwi under running water
- Peel with a paring knife
- Cut once lengthwise
- Cut into 4 slices width-wise, making 8 half moons per kiwi
- Place on dehydrator tray (this is the dehydrator I have, I love it!)
- Dry on high overnight for chewy candy that has to be stored in the fridge, or for 24 hours for hard candy that is shelf stable for a week.
I love dried fruit and jerky as an easy portable meal when we go to the beach or other outings at meal time.
