Our dried grapes turned out so sweet and good we decide to make some other dried fruit. I'm making dried apples,peaches, pears, kiwi, and bananas. Nicole helped me do the cutting. Sarah and Jessica were both close at hand to eat the extra fruit. We were entertained by Juergen and Philip who were practising their Viet Vo Dao . Philip just had his first class (it's a Martial art). Juergen was so impressed that he is thinking of taking it too. It's great exercise! Dried fruit is a great snack to put in a lunch box. You know it's healthy if you dry it yourself. Some fruit you buy in the stores add preservatives. You can buy a dryer for about $15. We plan to use the dried raisins for something special like baked apples.
