Pinterest Fail – Oven Dried Strawberries

Do it, they said. It will taste like candy, they said…

Well. They. Were. Wrong.

My roommate found something on Pinterest called “Oven Dried Strawberries”, and she posted it to my Facebook timeline. They’re supposed to be a healthy snack, tasting similar (or better) to Strawberry Twizzlers when they are done. This is not the case.

The instructions said to cut the strawberries in half if they were big. I did. Then it said to put them on a cookie sheet, and cook them in the oven for 3 hours at 210*F. I did that, and ended up with burnt strawberries at about 2 1/2 hours. So not even the full 3 hours. After the first hour, they looked good. The juices had come out and were spilling onto the tray. They smelled good. It looked like it was going to work out. I had hope for these.

Here is what they are supposed to look like:


Here are what mine looked like:


No es bueno.

Try if you must. Hope you have better luck than I did!
