We love to just eat the fruit straight. Our kids eat them instead of fruit snacks, and they are a much healthier snack.
Adding freeze dried fruits to baking is so easy. You can add them to muffins, pies and more. Check out how Jodi made a Blackberry pie for her husband using freeze dried blackberries. Jodi also used some freeze dried fruits in her famous 4th of July Patriotic Jello
Try adding some of your freeze dried fruits to oatmeal, cereals, pancakes or any other breakfast foods. Most of the time we just add the fruit dry and let the liquid of the cereals hydrate the fruits.
Freeze dried fruit is great for making syrups and jams. When you get to the bottom of your number 10 can, and you have some freeze dried fruit powder, consider using it to make your own quick jams like this.
We’ve even used freeze dried fruit in salad dressings. They are really nice to have when you aren’t looking to buy certain fruits out of season like raspberries. To see how we used it in a salad dressing, scroll down on this great post about Using your Food Storage.
One of our favorite ways to use freeze dried fruit is in smoothies. It’s fun to add a whole assortment of fruits to any smoothie and because they are dry, you can use ice as the liquid and make them nice and cold without having the water from the fruit as well. This makes a thicker smoothie.
