Here are some ways you can use your fruit. FRUIT COMPOTE: Soak the following dried fruit together, in amounts you wish, for several hours or overnight.... choppped pprunes, pears, apricots, peaches, raisins, and chopped dates. Add water to cover and allow to soak.
You can add the dates and a sprinkling of sunflower seeds for the last hour or so of soaking. This makes an especially satisfying breakfast, or a delicious dessert.
FRUIT TIDBITS: Soak chopped, dried fruits, in water to cover: Prunes, peaches, apricots, raisins, dates... vary the amounts of each fruit for different flavor combinations. OR: To about 2 cups of soaked fruit, stir in about 1 cup of chopped nuts. Blend apricots or apple chunks as for leather, and then add 1-½ cups of the puree to the fruit/nut mixture. Spread to about ½ inch thick onto leather tray.
Dry until surface is dry and fruit feels firm. Turn it over on the tray, and continue to dry on regular rack until both sides are firm and dry. Cut into squares and return to dehydrator to dry a bit more.
