My domestic goddess activity for the week has been to dehydrate fruit. My grandmother has a plum tree, and I took a bucket full of plums home, along with my parents' borrowed food dehydrator.
K and I took all the pits out of the plums, and blended up a blender full of the fruit (leaving skins on), and added 1/2 c. sugar to the mix. Then spread the puree'd fruit onto the trays of the food dehydrator and let it run for about 12 hours. The resulting fruit leather has been really good. K is looking at me like I'm magic.
I'm now drying banana slices and apple slices.
