    We end up eating our strawberries. However you are right, just slice and put them on the tray. Btw I have strawberries all over my yard as part of the landscaping, we just let them grow.

    So if it is predictable and preventable then you better prepare.

    The strawberries have come out quite well. For a preservative to keep them from turning brown I am using a solution of 1 tablespoon of vitamin C crystals in 3 cups of water. The color remains bright and you do not get enough of the ascorbic acid to taste.

    Going to do a tray of apples today. Some will be with skins and some without.

    Late report on the apples. In the future they will be done all without the skins as the skins tend to be too chewy. Our one apple tree has a very good crop coming in!

    Down here in Tullahoma we have got in, as part of hunting gear, dehydrators. Also got these funky looking gadgets that look, for all the world, like paintball pistols, for making jerky.

    When I go back in Saturday, I will get the specs on the ones we stock. And if the wallet is enough for it, maybe even get one.

    Looking forward to the apples coming in. I want to dehydrate some for crunchy snacks, and to try some for a brandy.

    I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.
