Drying fruit is a great way to preserve fresh fruit when you have a bit of extra leftover. There are multiple different methods of drying fruit and this is just one of them. The best fruit that you can dry is figs and apricots. First, you should thoroughly wash the fruit. I like to dry the fruit whole, but you can also dry them by cutting them out. Then you lay them out on a clean paper towel or cotton towel. Lay them out in the hot sun until they are dried and then store them in a cool and dry place. Enjoy!
