    Entries in Dried Fruit (1)


    "Dried fruit is nature's candy!"

     When I was a little girl, I'll admit I was disappointed when my grandmother said those words to me. I wanted c-a-n-d-y. Something full of sugar and coated with chocolate like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. She handed me a box of plain ol' raisins instead.

    Turns out she was right, of course.  

    Now I crave fruit straight from my dehydrator, including wacky stuff like  Watermelon Jerky. 

    I spotted this cute produce bin at Jay's Farmstand in Shelton, Washington and had to snap a quick picture. 

    I hope this photo brings back naturally-sweet memories for you as well. Happy snacking!
