Freeze-Dried Skittles

Freeze-dried Skittles are all the rage with the Harvest Right crowd and we definitely think they’re worth a try.

There’s no real reason to preserve Skittles for long-term storage, but freeze drying them makes them crunchy instead of chewy. The flavor is even more intense, and you don’t have that stick-to-your-teeth sensation. To freeze dry Skittles, just place them in a single layer on a Harvest Right freeze dryer tray and process in your home freeze dryer. The inside filling will expand, cracking the candy shell and doubling the size of the candy. Sometimes they come out in really odd shapes, which just ups the fun factor.

Freeze-dried Skittles have a powerful tangy flavor that pairs nicely with salted peanuts. Freeze-dried mini marshmallows have a creamy flavor that cuts through the citrus of the Skittles, so a half-and-half combination is extra tasty.

Harvest Right is the only maker of Home Freeze Dryers. You can buy directly from them, or, one of their resellers.

Wish there were a way to make monthly payments to buy. Several thousand dollars just isn’t in my budget.

In my medium trays I think I can fit about 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 c. Just make sure to leave a little space between (don’t pack them in the tray) because they need room to expand.

Does the shelf temperature have any affect on how the skittles change? I ran a batch of a few items and the skittles did not really change, still flat and chewy. 55F shelf setting from factory, 33 Hr total cycle.

We put them in and let the freeze dryer figure out how long it takes. It is normally well under 24 hours.
