Sometimes our labor rewards us in leaps and bounds. Farms and homesteads alike have been busy preserving the blessed harvest of fall fruits of the season. What do you do when you have canned and preserved your fruit and still seem to have an abundance of fruit left? Why not dehydrate it! Apples, pears, berries, raisins, figs, and apricots are some of the most popular fruits to dry and will create new and exciting flavors in Fall's favorite recipes.

Some of the most delectable recipes have dried fruit as their special ingredient. In a previous article, it was discussed that the dehydration process minimally effects the fruit's nutrition. The unique flavors and new chewy textures can be a special addition to recipes. In fact, one of the benefits of dried fruits is when you reconstitute it, you can add a deeper layer of flavors. For instance, how does drunken bourbon soaked figs sound? If you want to take your recipe up another notch, consider adding a hard liquor like rum, brandy or even fruit juice can be used in lieu of water to reconstitute fruit.
