View Full Version : Keeping dehydrated fruit looking edible...
01-21-2006, 10:51 AM
I have a dehaydrator. Last summer I dehydrated peaches, apricots and even a nectarine or two. The problem is now, they don't look too edible. Plus, what is the best way to store these items?
Ir ead to soak them in citrus juice, before dehydrating, which I did. My wife says I didn't slice them thin enough, maybe I didn't.
Who here is the dehydrator pro who can help me out?

My friends gave me a huge platter of dried fruits (peaches, apricots and raisins) for the holidays. They were all black and DEEEElicious. The lady who made them usually uses sulfites to keep them pretty. Says they don't sell when they are black. To me, I'll only eat them when they are black because I KNOW they are edible and not going to cause asthma attacks.
You could soak them in lemon juice if you wish OR you could change your mental programming of what "edible" is supposed to look like.
Yanno? Now that I write this, I'm realizing how many programs we have ~ what food is "supposed" to look like and what humans are supposed to look like. Thanks for asking the question so I could have these awarenesses.
