Mr. Petrie’s mom came to visit us last weekend. She’s a whiz in the kitchen and she had a great idea for using extra garden produce: dehydrate it! She purchased a dehydrator for us. (Thanks, G!!)
On my first go with the dehydrator, I made dried apricots, apples and blueberries.
The apples and blueberries were sweet, but the apricots were a little bitter. I served them with dark chocolate, and they were perfect. (Haha-I guess that’s kind of like covering salad in tons of Ranch dressing.)
Both girls enjoyed the dried fruit. Even my new eater gummed an apple.
I have lots of dehydrating ideas. If we’re friends, don’t be surprised if you get a dehydrated gift for your next birthday or Christmas.
Have a great day.
