You’ll need a food dehydrator for this recipe. Cook time can be greatly influenced by the climate you are in, and so in a Florida summer season the time will be three to four times greater than needed in a northern, drier climate.

Watermelon Jerky

Servings will vary.


  • Fair amount cut 6"-8" strips about 1/2" thick watermelon think Hershey bar or men's belt


  1. Place watermelon strips in dehydrator for 8 hours. Can take 8-12 hours, or up to 24 hours depending on climate. The watermelon crisps after cooling. Make thicker slices for a fruit leather roll up type snack. Make thinner for crisped watermelon chips.
