Recipe Failure (#Pinterest)

I’ve been pinning lots of recipes lately on Pinterest. Yesterday, I was home with my daughter who felt under the weather so I figured I would try one in particular since it seemed so simple: Dried Strawberries. The recipe claimed you just put whole or halved strawberries in the oven at 200 degrees F for 3 hours. Simple, right?

3 hours later, the strawberries look like shriveled somethings, they were soggy and looked unappetizing. Figuring every oven is different, I increased the temperature to 250 degrees F. Checked them an hour later and nothing changed.

Here’s the picture from Pinterest: (They even look like cute little hearts!)

5 hours later, my strawberries look dead:

Nailed it!!

And shockingly, when I tasted them, they tasted like slightly burnt rubbery strawberries, a far cry from the candy taste the recipe claims. I’m not deterred though…I still plan on trying some more recipes from Pinterest. At least one of them has to work! 😉
