The other day, I was searching through my pantry for one of my oversized pots and I came across my fruit and vegetable dehydrator. In hindsight this was perfect timing, since Tu Bishvat falls this weekend. Using a vegetable dehydrator is the best way to prepare dried fruits that are healthy, preservative-free, tasty and that also won’t break the bank. In addition, most dried fruits sold in Israel are imported, so preparing your own dried fruits is a great way to celebrate the New Year for Trees with fruits grown at home here in Israel.I took a few fruits I had in the fridge, sliced them, squeezed some lemon juice on top and then lined them up, touching each other, on the racks in my fruit dehydrator, closed the top and pushed the start button.
