Making the Strawberry Powder
You will need a coffee grinder ( I have not tried using a pestle and mortar so if anyone tries that let me know if it works)
Follow my directions for dehydrating Strawberries. The secret to making a good powder is to be sure your strawberries are very dry before you grind them. You should be able to snap them between your fingers.
Grind the dried Strawberries to a fine powder.
Transfer the powder to an airtight container. Use a soft paint brush to clear out all the powder residue.
Store in a cool dark place.
Add oxygenators to keep the powder as dry as possible.
