Bird in Hand Farm is an imaginary place.

Failure averted.

Remember the dried apples?  No one liked them.  I tried them in granola but even that was not a hit.  So they have sat on the pantry shelf waiting for me to come up with something creative.

Remember the blueberries?  We finally ran out towards the end of April.  It was a sad day, but maybe a good thing.   By the time July arrives we will be missing them. 

But, no blueberries created a breakfast dilemma.  I want fruit with my breakfast, but nothing is in season here.  So, I got desperate and tried the dried apples.  You know what happens when you add plain yogurt and dried apples together?  The apples absorb all of the liquid that leaks out of the yogurt.  By the time I am ready to eat breakfast at work, they are the perfect consistency and I don't have runny yogurt.  Add some sliced almonds and a sprinkle of sugar and you have a great breakfast.

Failure averted.  I'm going to try this with dried cherries too.

  1. My father in law's family dried apples in their attic when he was a kid during the depression. Then, his mom made cakes from them. I'll have to ask him if he knows the recipe.
