What is Dried Fruit?
Dried fruit is simply fruits which have had almost all their water removed. This can be done through various drying methods but has pretty much the same results; as moisture evaporates, plump fruit shrinks and shrivels, leaving you with a nutrient-dense high energy snack. Thanks to their lack of moisture, dried fruits have an incredible shelf life making them an ideal addition to any kitchen pantry. Though most commonly found dried, you’ll also see fruits candied once they’re dried. This does nothing more than to sweeten them and potentially add a slight diversity of texture thanks to the crunch of sugar.
Are Dried Fruits Healthy?
Highly nutritious, dried fruit is loaded with micronutrients, antioxidants, and fiber. With 3.5 times the fiber, vitamins, and minerals as fresh fruit when compared by weight, dried fruit is the easy choice if you’re looking for a quick and delicious way to get a lot of nutrients and calories quickly.
How to Use Dried Fruit
The perfect addition for baked goods, dried fruits are a truly versatile ingredient with a wide range of uses. Perfect for folding into bread doughs, cookies, cakes, muffins, and scones. Dried fruit adds a delightful color, flavor, and textural interest to your baking! But it doesn’t stop there, throw some dried cranberries into your next stuffing, add some cherries to your savory braised meats, or into a rice dish for a bright pop of flavor!
