Dehydrating fruit in the air fryer is easy, and a great way to preserve your fruit for healthy snacks.
Wash all fruit as required.
Peel fruit that needs peeling. The peel on oranges and kiwis can be left on.
Slice the fruit evenly. This is the key to even dehydrating.
Dip fruit at risk for oxidizing, such as bananas, in lemon water (optional ). This water is made by adding lemon juice to water at approximately 1:3 ratio.
Spray air fryer basket with non stick cooking spray (optional).
Place the fruit flat on the air fryer basket.
Dehydrate at 135°F for 3 to 8 hours. Drying times vary with each fruit and the thickness of the slices.
Check on your fruit throughout the dehydrating process, and remove from the dehydrator once fully dry.
Smaller air fryers may require multiple batches.
Store in air tight containers in a cool location for up to six months.
An air fryer can be used for dehydrating if it has a dehydrate setting. If there is no dehydrate setting, temperatures may be too high to safely dehydrate your fruit.
