Drying Fruit Tips

  • Figs - Cut through from the top into six sections but not right through to the bottom then open it out into a star. (ABC Garden Show)
  • Jakfruit - George and Judy’s Recipe for Freezing & Drying
    Use lemon syrup for drying the fruit but drain off the juice before drying – about 5 minutes is all you need. The syrup soon takes on the colour and flavour of the fruit so must pull out a lot of juice from the fruit. This mixture freezes nicely with no discolouring. The recipe is very much off the cuff: about a cup of sugar, juice of 5 lemons, a 6kg+ Jakfruit and do use the rags – just cut them with scissors.
