Drying Up

It's been nearly a week of dry weather and the torrential rain we had is only evident in the explosion of weeds in the veggie patch.  With temperatures rising and sunshine forecast for the next few days I decided to give the new drying cabinet a try out.

Apricots were on the market at a reasonable price so that's what I bought.

I sliced them thinly and then put them onto the shelves.

This might not work.

The mesh is fine but fruit flies would still get in.

In high summer these would dry in a day but it's not that warm yet.

We shall see. Oh, and if you are wondering why I am wearing a mask it's not toxic fruit, it's the olive pollen and this is me, living like Darth Veda for about a month!

I shall let you know how the drying goes.
