Who doesn’t love dried fruits and vegetables?

There is the extra sweetness and concentrated flavor. They can be eaten “as is” or reconstituted with water. They’re lightweight—easy to carry to class, to work, or even around the world.

And don’t forget their environmental friendliness:

  • they can be stored nearly forever without refrigeration,
  • they don’t need to be cooked to be enjoyed, and
  • unlike so many other foods, they don’t come wrapped in excessive packaging (especially if you make them yourself).

This great DIY project can be made for around 10 bucks! See how to make it below:
