Bananas are one of the most rewarding fruits to begin dehydrating with. They are easy and there are a variety of ways to prepare them. You can slice them into little circle tokens or long banana strips. You can dehydrate them for 12 hours or 24 hours. No matter how you dehydrate them, you will get a great banana flavor and texture experience! A great place to start is to slice them in thin circles and dehydrate them for 18 hours on 117 °F / 47 °C.
