Fruits - Dried
Dried fruit is fruit from which major water content has been removed either naturally, through sun drying, or through the use of specialized dryers or dehydrators. Dried fruit has a sweet taste, nutritive value, and long shelf life. Dried fruits are widely used, from raisins to plums, dates, prunes, peaches and apples among others. Some fruits such as berries are filled with a sweetener before drying. Dried fruits are easy and convenient in that they can be stored in cupboards and used whenever the occasion demands for them.
