How do you dry fruit quickly in the oven?
- Heat oven to 225 degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment paper (or a Silpat baking mat, if you’re drying figs).
- Transfer pan to oven; dry until fruit has shriveled, edges have dried, and centers are still juicy; timing will vary according to variety of fruit, ripeness, and size, 1 1/2 to 4 hours.
What temperature should you dry fruit?
The temperature you dehydrate fruits is usually between 125-135 degrees. I personally like to have a lower temp so I use about 125 degrees. You can also get the drying process kickstarted by using the higher temperature for an hour or two, then lowering to a gentler temperature to finish up.
