We were excited to have our first free workshop of the year earlier this week!
On Monday, ten Fruit Share volunteers gathered together at the Robert A. Steen Community Centre to learn about how to preserve fruit through drying it.
Along with a demo, volunteers sampled a variety of different dehydrator treats.
The samples were made in two different dehydrators: my own ancient Mr. Coffee dehydrator, as well as Fruit Share’s beautiful brand new Excalibur dehydrator (which was also about three times the size of the Mr. Coffee brand :)).
We had a great deal of fun and are looking forward to upcoming workshops. Dehydrator recipes for the fruit you pick will be featured here on the blog over the next week or so. Please share with us any great dehydrator recipes you have, too!
