Recipe - Dehydrated Watermelon (AKA Melon Jerky)

From the Weston Kitchen


  • A mixture of watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew


This is how you make all natural, no sugar added, watermelon candy in a dehydrator. Ridiculously simple and also your new favorite thing... FYI. Also a great way to use up any extra melon you have in the fridge that will go bad soon (that's what we did). 

  1. Slice the melon into ¼ inch thick pieces (the length and width don't really matter - these pieces are about 3 inches by 1 inch.
  2. Arrange the melon on the dehydrator trays, keeping about ½ inch between the pieces. Dehydrate at 145° for 8 hours.
  3. Be sure to check the fruit every so often - there are many variables when dehydrating, so they may be done sooner.
  4. The fruit is ready when it is dry and flexible - don't let it get brittle.
  5. The cantaloupe and honeydew may be dry an hour or so earlier than the watermelon, so be sure to check those separately.
