I bought some dried fruit at Bulk Barn last week. I have been meaning to buy some for a while, but my son Daniel inspired me to finally do it. He has been making himself trail mixes. He uses almost everything! Almonds, peanuts, cashews, sun flower seeds, crackers X3, Cheerios, bran flakes, cornflakes, shreddies, and a few chocolate chips. But he does not like raisins. Nor is he a berry eater.
Alaina, Julia and Jack have been making their own too, inspired by Daniel. Way to go!
So I thought this may be a good opportunity to buy some dried fruit from the Bulk Barn. With my cloth bags I purchased one dried blueberries, cranberries and strawberries. I figured the other kids would like them too. I myself was not a fan of cranberries, and I never had any other dried fruit besides raisins.
We tried them together, and no one likes them but me. The strawberries taste like straberry jam! Probably because they were infused with a sweetener.
I will have to select some other fruits as well and keep an eye out for those extra sweet ones, I’d rather natural, nothing added. No need.
My next big adventure would be to dry berries and store them myself at home. Some day I would ove to have a bunch of tpes of berries and even some fuit trees. Though we need to aquire a taste for those besides apples.
