I try to buy the majority of my food from the farmer's market and have found myself nibbling and subsequently purchasing each week the various dried food sundries I've found there.
Apricots, cherries, blueberries, strawberries...At $2.50/pack its a fair price for honest food but at the rate I'm consuming them I've started thinking there has to be another way...
And indeed there is.
I've just eaten two handfuls of homemade dried strawberries before they were barely cooled. They were that good.
So here we go:
Wash fruit and cut in slices or leave whole (e.g. blueberries or strawberries)
Heat oven to its LOWEST setting (mine is 170)
Put fruit onto baking sheet and "bake" until chewy not dried
Cool then Eat!
