Opal had set over the weekend where I'm trying to do at least one thing per day (or night) in my Excalibur! I wanted to keep it simple again like I did with yesterday's post...but even more so! What you see here is PLAIN Watermelon! Nothing else added! I dried at about 115-120 for about 14 hours or so. I've tried this before and haven't dried them long enough! I FINALLY was successful! YAY! A little patience is all I need! These turned out great! I like to call them "Candy". The flavor is similar to a Watermelon Flavored Jolly Rancher
(It's been a LONG time since I have had one but it's the first thing I thought of when I munched on one of these little gems!)
I change the water 2 to 3 times each day. So far I have ripped off the outer layer of the old celery because it was getting discolored. I may have to do this again. However, I'm pleased with this first attempt of re-growing celery!
Another update...the Cashew Cream that I made last week was featured on the Garden of Life Blog! I wrote up an additional Guest Blogger spot for them specifically based on the recipe and idea I posted last week. There are more photos and additional ideas and alternatives to some of the ingredients! Take a look when you have a chance!
