Dried Fruit

Dried fruit gets that way when most of the moisture is removed. This can be accomplished by using the oven, the microwave, the sun, or a food dehydrator. The most popular dried fruits are raisins, prunes, and dates. Others commonly available in stores are apricots, figs, apple slices, cranberries, and tomatoes. Many more fruits can be dried, including apricots, bananas, pears, and pineapples.
