DIY Dried Fruit for Lunch (or a Gift)

Dried Fruit hack

DIY dried fruit is a lot easier than you might imagine.

Dried fruit–made fresh by you–is a perfect on-the-go snack, easy to take with you to the office or the gym. You can eat it on the run or add it to a salad. If you’re feeling really creative (and perhaps strapped for cash), wrap some of this up to give as a holiday gift. Just put it in a tin, put a ribbon on it, and you’ve created a homemade and delicious gift.

No matter what time of year, if you have leftovers, you’re on your way to becoming a “prepper.” Here’s a handy guide that will help you plan your fruit-drying escapades.
