Wash the strawberries thoroughly to remove any dirt or pesticides. Discard any that are decayed, bruised or moldy.
Hull the strawberries and cut them into ⅜ inch pieces. Try to cut them all roughly the same size so that they dry evenly.
Before dehydrating the strawberries, blot them dry with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
Transfer the strawberries to the dehydrator and space them out so that none of them are touching each other.
Set the dehydrator to 135 F (60 C), and run it for 5-12 hours for chewy strawberries and 5-18 hours for crisp strawberries. *see note 1.
Rotate the racks every few hours, moving the bottom rack to the top position.
Remove the strawberries from the dehydrator and allow them to cool for several minutes. They'll firm up a bit as they cool.
Allow the dried strawberries to cool for 30 minutes, before storing them in an airtight container.
