Freeze dried fruit

baking, cakes, ingedients

Feel the need to share the wonders of freeze dried fruit.

I may be coming late to the party but now that I have discovered the versatility of freeze dried fruit, I will be adding it to everything. On reflection maybe not in my onion bread!! Price wise buying in bulk is a no brainer- the 7g containers from Waitrose cost £2.66 while the 2x150g containers ordered through Amazon (free delivery) cost £14!

So far I have found it to be a brilliantly addition to macarons- both the shells but more importantly the fillings. Puréed fruit is way too liquid and the consistency you need for shells and filling becomes a mess. I have also added it to sponge cake.

Thanks for visiting!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
