Don't ask me why we haven't done this before. We own a dehydrator. We've dried all kinds of stuff in it, jerky, tomatoes, bananas, jalapenos, etc.
We took some of our applesauce and added a package of cherry sugar free jello mix to it. I had a sheet that you're supposed to use for soft stuff like that, so we used it. I had too much applesauce, though, so I put plastic wrap over two trays and spread the rest on that.
The plastic wrap trays finished first, by a few hours.
The kids love it.
I meant to take pictures for you, but you know how I am. I took a picture of the applesauce all mixed up but forgot to take one of it spread out on the trays, partly dried and dried.
Then I cut it up and the kids ate it. lol
