How To Make Your Own Dried Fruit

It’s easy! Had to start it off by saying that because it may seem like a daunting task but it’s not unless you don’t have an oven. Then you may want to skip this.

For those of you who do have an oven, all you have to really know is how much to bake it in the oven.

All you need is the fruit you want dried,wash it, remove any pits and slice it evenly. Put the slices on parchment paper on the pan. Top the slices with a pizza screen to keep them from curling.

Set your oven to 130 to 160 degrees.

Then pop those babies in!

Apple = 6 hours

Bananas = 6 hours
