We did a lot of family hiking when I was growing up. In the 1970’s & ’80’s small packages of convenience snacks and protein bars were not as common as they are now. When we hiked, we mostly packed salame, cheese, crackers, & a nut + fruit trailmix. These days, when there is an abundance of summer fruit, I like to wash, pit, & slice fruit for the dehydrator to make a packable snack, like we used to eat on the trail.
Dried Fruit Recipe
Wash, pit, & slice fruit and place in a dehydrator according to the machine’s directions. I have a basic dehydrator and it was set at 135 degrees for about 8 hours.
