1 Zone / 16 Tray / 27.5 sq. ft Tray Areaview
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, picked over
- 1/2 cup sliced ripe strawberries
- 2 & 1/2 cups cooked long-grain white rice
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon crumbled dehydrated stevia leaves or 1 tablespoon sugar
- In blender, combine the berries and blend until smooth. Pour the puree into a medium bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Mash for 1 minute with a potato masher to combine (do not use a blender or mixer).
- Using a 1/4-cup measure, scoop the mixture onto drying sheets set in dehydrator trays. With the potato masher, lightly tap each cake 4 to 5 times to flatten it down and form a 3 & 1/2-inch diameter cake. Dehydrate at 125°F for about 12 hours; flip the cakes over onto the dehydrator trays after 6 hours; remove the drying sheets. When dehydrated, the cakes will be hard, completely dry, and snap when bent.
- Store in canning jars or vacuum seal with one 100 cc oxygen pack, and double-bag in Mylar until needed. Stored this way, they will keep 5 or more years.
- Dip each cake in boiling water for 15 seconds and no more. Heat 1 tablespoon cooking oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place the cakes in the hot skillet and cook for 30 seconds on each side.
