The dehydrator is set between 125 and 135 and I will stir in a couple hours. Man, I am so excited!! I'll let you know tomorrow of the outcome. I'm sure this will take at least 24 hours but I will let you know the timing as well.
Now for a little information: supposedly you have to break the skins on the cranberries so they will not dehydrate into little hard balls plus if you are sweetening them like I am, that allows the apple juice to sweeten the inside. You can toss or sprinkle the cranberries after they have been cooked with sugar or drizzle with honey or perhaps Karo Syrup and then dehydrate but I'm choosing apple juice just because it is so healthy and I'm not a big fan of oooey, gooey sweet anyway. The livestrong.com site says the following: Spread the cranberries in a single layer on a cookie sheet, and put them in the freezer for two hours. Washington State University says that the freezing process helps the berries dry faster.
As you have just read, I only put them in the freezer for 30 minutes. I'm always rushing things and I may be sorry but we'll see. I also found that if I just poured the hot juice over the berries and let them sit all the cranberry skins do not break so I did it a little differently than the livestrong site advises. Anyway, "live and learn".
