In today's fast-paced world, finding snacks that are convenient to carry and nutritious has become a need for many. Making your dried fruit might be the perfect choice if you're looking for such a snack. With durbl food-grade silicone bags, creating delicious, nutritious, and portable dried fruits becomes a breeze. Let's dive into this fun and rewarding process together!

Gather Your Ingredients
Fresh fruits (such as apples, bananas, pineapples, etc.)
Lemon juice (optional)
durbl food-grade silicone bags

Step One: Selecting and Preparing the Fruits
Choosing fresh and ripe fruits is vital to ensuring your dried fruits are tasty. After washing the fruits, peel and slice them thinly. If you're concerned about the fruits oxidizing and turning brown, you can soak the cut fruits in lemon water for a few minutes.

Step Two: Flavoring and Pre-treatment
Remove the fruit slices from the lemon water and gently pat them dry. If you like, you can enhance the flavor of your dried fruits by adding some cinnamon powder or honey at this stage. Then, place the fruit slices into your Durbl gallon bag and give it a gentle shake to coat each slice evenly with your chosen seasonings.

Step Three: Drying the Fruits
Preheat your oven to a low temperature (about 140-158°F). Lay the fruit slices on a baking sheet, ensuring they don't overlap, to allow them to dry evenly. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for several hours. The exact time will depend on the fruit type and the slices' thickness. Flipping the fruit slices occasionally is a good idea to ensure they dry evenly on both sides.

Step Four: Cooling and Storing
Once the fruit slices are thoroughly dried and have a slight golden hue, you can remove them from the oven. Allow the dried fruits to cool down to room temperature before storing them in durbl snack bags. And just like that, you've got a batch of delicious and nutritious homemade dried fruits!

Patience is vital in making dried fruits.

Avoid the temptation to increase the temperature to shorten the drying time. Low and slow baking preserves the nutrients and flavors of the fruits better.
