Drying fruit

I’m sure most of my readers are familiar with Kirsten’s blog at Milkwood Permaculture, but just in case not, here’s her latest post on drying fruit. She uses the same brand of dryer as I do and I can definitely endorse her recommendations.

As usual, her post is full of useful information on techniques, tips and methods. Go take a look.

Here’s my dryer with a tray of red capsicum slices ready to go :

    Absolutely beautiful patterns, a delicious shade of red and becoming dried food for later makes it even more delectable Bev, good on you.

      And the best thing was, they were only $2.99 a kilo. They’re NEVER that cheap but my greengrocer had a glut of them.

    I read Kirsten’s article this morning, and found it interesting she left the skin on some of her fruit.

    Will you use the dried capsicum for cooking (ie: stews) or do you have another purpose in mind?
