Making Prunes


Our house came with a plum tree


We didn’t know what kind of fruit tree it was until plums started falling off, and the dogs were eating them.



They were very tasty, but more plums all at once than the three of us could eat (me and the dogs, Dave’s not interested in plums)

So I dug out the dehydrator


A bucket of plums turned into four trays of plum-halves.

About 15 hours later, I had prunes.


They are super sweet!


I went ahead and froze them to ensure they will not mold. I thought I had them dry enough, but not enough to trust putting them in the cupboard. Even though they are taking up a little freezer space, they take up a lot less space dehydrated than they would if I’d just frozen them fresh.
