We have dehydrated a lot of things over the years but last night I ran into a big problem... I found a recipe for dehydrating cantaloupe with blue berries. 1 1/2 cups melon and 1 cup blue berries, put in a food processer or blender pour quarter inch thick dry for 6 to 9 hrs at 135 degrees. We have American harvest snack master dehydrators. The problem is the leathers have big cracks in them and have become very thin. When I processed the mix I used a Vitamix which is a blender on steroids and am wondering if the machine whipped to much air into the mix ? I have never made the fruit leather and am at a loss as to what happened. I now have 12 trays of hummm, blue stuff. Any suggestions as to what happened and if this can be salvaged or should I just try again would be appreciated. Thanks Dave F
One other thing, The melons were fresh out of the garden and the blue berries were frozen, thawed not drained, I figured that draining them would drain flavor out of them too.
