Dried Peaches

One of my goals this year was to dehydrate a box of peaches. Given the size of our food dehydrator, we were able to dehydrate several boxes of peaches. I store my dried fruit in 1/2 gallon mason jars and use the FoodSaver wide-mouth jar sealer to remove all the air from the jars. It’s a brilliant system and a great way to preserve dried fruit for later snacking (note that I am NOT being paid to promote these lovely products).

Dried Peaches

  • Servings: 1/2 gallon
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 25 – 30 pounds (1 box) ripe peaches, washed peeled

Directions

  1. Remove the pit and slice peaches 1/4″ wide.
  2. Place peaches in a single layer on your dehydrating trays.
  3. Set dehydrator to 125ºF and let them dry for 12-16 hours.
  4. To determine when peaches are dry by touch, remove a piece of fruit and allow it to cool. The peach should be pliable and no moisture should be visible when a cut edge is pressed.
  5. To control mold growth either freeze or vacuum pack the dried peaches.
