Dehydrating fruits and vegetables is a great way of preserving them so they can be used later in cooking. Many people have dehydrators, but did you know that you can also dehydrate some items using your Philips Airfryer? This makes preparing food for the winter months easy, as it means that you don’t need to buy large amounts of dried goods from the supermarket – you can simply make your own at home.
In this article we’ll take a look at how to prepare peppers for drying with an air fryer!
What You Will Need:
2 red or green bell peppers 1 tablespoon sea salt 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1) Wash and pat dry your two pepper halves – make sure there is no moisture on them.
2) Slice the peppers into thin strips and place into a bowl, then add the tablespoon of sea salt and two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.
3) Mix everything together well with your hands to ensure that all the pepper pieces are coated in the mixture.
4) Arrange these slices onto a metal rack fitted inside your Philips Airfryer so they aren’t touching each other – you need room for air to be able to flow around them. Make sure you use a metal rack as non-metal ones will damage the coating of your Airfryer!
5) Set your air fryer to 150 degrees Celsius for 9-10 minutes if using red peppers or 110 degrees Celsius for 5-6 minutes if using green peppers. You’ll know when they are ready as their appearance will change, turning a darker colour than before.
6) Once they are done, allow them to cool down completely before storing in an airtight container – this is important so the peppers don’t absorb any moisture. If you then want to use them for cooking you can just place them into the oven or grill until hot and serve!
