|Pick and wash nectarines|
|Cut in half and remove pit. Slice each half into 4 or 5 wedges. If a piece ends up bigger or smaller than the others, you have to eat it. A shame, I know. Place wedges close together on drying sheet. Load into dehydrator. (I recommend this one: Excalibur 9 Tray Dehydrator - ED 2900 Dehydrater - Jerky Maker Food Dehydrator Excaliber)|
|Dry for somewhere around 20 hours- check occasionally so you don't overdry them.|
|Store in a airtight container. If you have room, and want to keep them fresh for a longer period, store the bags in the freezer.|
The most difficult thing about drying nectarines is not eating them all before winter even starts. I keep having to tell the kids that they can eat fresh nectarines if they want, but we need to save the dried ones for when the fresh ones are gone. (of course, I still eat a few here and there, I deserve it, I did the work, right?).
