Henry Homeyer, life-long organic gardener and author, recently posted an article on how to extend the life of this years bountiful harvest. Henry who recently purchased an Excalibur Dehydrator has found the perfect solution for drying his fruit.

Peahces can be dehydrate with the skins on or off. If you are planning to leave the skin on the peaches be sure to thoroughly wash peaches to remove any pesticides.
To remove the skin dip the peaches in boiling water for one minute then dipg in cool water.

Alternatively, you can skip the hot cold dip and cut away the skin with a sharp knife.
Cut the peaches in half
Remove the pit and then cut the halves into 1/8” slices.
