The shelf life of mangoes are not very long. My favorite way to make them last longer is to dehydrate them into yummy snacks! Dried mango lasts a long time and is super yummy and nutritious!

Fresh mangoes are super yummy! However, they are hard to keep fresh if you have more than a few at a time. I like to dehydrate mango into super yummy, and long lived snacks!

We recently came upon MANY mangoes. So many, that they were going bad faster than we could eat them.

I decided to whip out the dehydrator and make some dried mangoes!

How To Make Dehydrated Mango

  • Peel the mango. I like to slice the mango into quarters and peel the outside off that way. I find it super easy!
  • Slice the mango into 1/4 inch thick slices. It will be super slippery so make sure to take care when using the knife.
  • Lay the sliced mango into the dehydrator trays. I like to keep the smaller end pieces on a separate tray from the thicker middle pieces. They tend to dry at different rates.
  • Once you have the trays filled, set the dehydrator to 105-135 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-24 hours. The time depends on your climate and the specific dehydrator you are using. We have a drier climate here being in the Mojave Desert so ours leans more towards the 12 hour time frame.
  • After about hour 8, I like to periodically check the mango slices to make sure they are not becoming over-dry. Dried mango will have a slight bend to it but little moisture.
  • Once your dried mango is done, store it in an air-tight container to keep moisture out.
  • Some people add a little bit of powdered sugar (or icing sugar) to the container to keep the moisture off the mangoes.

They are super yummy, travel well, and last a long while. I hope you enjoy!

Unknown Homestead

Hello! Welcome to Unknown Homestead! I'm Erika. While I would love to say we have an amazing, huge homestead that is complete and bringing in the dough....it's a work in progress on just over 2 acres. We bought this property in 2019. I had big dreams but this fit the price range. Being built in the 1980's it was not an old house like people buy, but it still needed some work to be done. I handle the animals and yardwork, while Greg handles the smoking/grilling of meats and still works a fulltime job until this homestead is complete and profitable. Having 3 stepchildren does help get some things done around here, but now there is another one on the way. We started out as (I guess you would say) normal people. Depending on grocery stores for food and binge watching whatever TV show or movie we were into at the time. Our ways have since changed (and are continuing to change). We have added chickens, ducks, turkeys, and pigs to our Unknown Homestead (along with our dogs and cat of course). While this property is not that old to us, I have been trying to change my ways for many years. This blog shows what we are doing and how, with the hopes it can help some of you with your hopes and dreams as well!
