You, Too, Can Enjoy
Eating Dried Fruits!
About twenty years ago a California dried
fruit packer, wishing to encourage the use
of his products, issued a circular containing full
instructions for the preparation of dried fruit | for
the table. Thinking it might be interesting to
you, we are reprinting below. Poorly cooked
dried fruit is the least appetizing food one can
think of, but properly prepared it will have all
the deliciousness and appetite appeal of fancy
preserved fruits. Cut out the reprint below for
your cook book.
How to Cook
California Dried Fruit
1. Separate the fruit so each piece will be single; then
wash several times in lukewarm water.
2. Pour the water off, put the cleansed fruit into a ste4r
pot, cover well with cold water and let stand for at least
twelve hours, keeping the pot covered all the time with a lid.
3. After fruit has been thoroughly soaked and retained
its natural size, pour off this water saturated with fruit juice
into anotherstew pan; add sugar according to taste (apricots
and nectarines will require quite a good deal of sugar, peaches
less, prunes very little or none, and pears none at all), and
boil for from fifteen to twenty minutes until you get a rich
fruit syrup. Pour this boiling hot syrup over the soaked fruit.
Put stew pot on back of the stove and let fruit simmer very
slowly for from fifteen to thirty minutes, according to the
quality of the fruit. Prunes will have to simmer from one
hour to two hours.
4. Now take your fruit from the stove, keeping the lid
• on the pot, and let it cool off gradually, and you will have the
finest fruit you ever tasted.
5. If cooked properly, the fruit, when served, must be
clear, the syrup must be rich and clear, each piece of fruit
must present itself singly and look as if fresh fruit had been
' cooked.
6. You can greatly improve on all the varieties of fruit,
especially on pears and prunes, by adding some orange or
lemon peel; the mixing of the two flavors gives a very de
lightful taste. J
7. Fruit cooked in this way can be used for all sorts of
purposes, just the same as fresh fruit—for pies, cakes, pud
dings, or just as stewed fruit in any way you may desire.
8. . Never put your fruit on the stove without thorouglily
soaking it beforehand; never boil it on a quick fire. The re
sult will always be unsatisfactory. Fruit must be soaked and
must have time to gain the water it lost in the evaporating
process, and must soak in cold water.
