Dried Fruit



My current snack obsession!
Dried cherries, pineapple, mango, 
apricots and dates!
I really love kiwi, but it's hard to find!
I made granola yesterday and was happy to
have enough leftover fruit to fill my snacking jar.
Jar and marble slab, courtesy of the auction trash. :)

  1. It's arranged so NICELY! What happens if you want an apricot and they're at the bottom of the jar?

    3. Yes, I didn't find them all at the same time, but over the year I found one here and there!
      I don't think I'll ever stop being amazed at the stuff left behind. It is amazing to me!

  4. Those apricots look like the ones I chop up for the Scones I make. I do love dried fruit. One of my favorites is pineapple. Don loved the corn pudding. It was good.

    1. I'll share my fruit, but you can keep the banana chips. Those I don't really care for! I like the chewy ones! :)

  6. I'm never really sure if I like dried fruit or not. Some of it is okay and others are downright nasty. Then again, raisins rarely disappoint me. I do love your jar full of fruit though.

    1. Taylor thought the cherries were nasty. ha. Yeah, you can't go wrong with raisins. Or craisins. Seems like the flavor is very consistent. I think the banana chips are yucky.

  9. A delicious looking snack obsession...and good for you, too. I think I need to branch out. Other than raisins, I don't eat much dried fruit, so pretty in your attractive jar.

    1. I think I'm the opposite. I like raisins just fine, but never buy them! Maybe we need to trade! ha.

  11. It varies on the dried fruit for me but it's definitely a great way of snacking without being too unhealthy, my favourite dried fruit are cherries, simply amazing tasting.

  12. OMG, Betsy!! I can NEVER get enough of these kinds of "snacks." In fact, the package becomes empty before I get tired of the taste or the eating.... and peanuts... oh... don't get me started!!
