Dehydrated Fruit Recipes

Here are a couple of recipes; I recently made using dehydrated fruit.

Dehydrated fruit recipes;
Apple Crisp
3 c. DH apple slices
4 c. water
1 c. granular sugar
1 ¾ tsp cinnamon
1 ½ tsp salt
Topping;
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. all-purpose flour
½ tsp salt
½ c. soft butter or margarine

Boil apples slices in water. Remove from heat. Stir in sugar, cinnamon, and salt, into apple slices. Spread mixture in 8 x 8 x 2 inch pan. Sift remaining ingredients except for butter. Cut in butter until mixture looks like cornmeal. Spread on top of apple slices. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes

Peach Cobbler:

4 c. DH peach slices
7 c. water
1 c. sugar
½ c. cornstarch or arrowroot
½ c. cold water
Topping:
2 ½ c. biscuit mix
8 TB margarine
8 TB sugar
1 ½ c water
Cinnamon and ginger, to taste (optional)
Bring water to boil, add peach slices and sugar. Cook until softened. Make a paste w/cornstarch or arrowroot and cold water and add to desired consistency. Add cinnamon and ginger. Use a 9×13 inch pan for baking.
Mix ingredients for topping to consistency of cake batter and spread on top of the peach mix Bake at 350 about 20 minutes. Use other fruits for variety.

As a basic rule of thumb; add 1 part fruit to 2 parts liquid-water, milk, cream or juice.
Allow to reconstitute

Hope you enjoy them.

    My mother made a delicious peach cobbler. Double crust (pie crust). She would make up the first layer with the peaches and sugar and then the first crust and put it in the oven to cook. She would also bake a top crust and bake it at the same time as the first layer of cobbler. She would stew more peachs on the top of the stove. When the first layer was done she would dot it with butter then pour the stewed peaches on top then place the second crust and dot it with butter. (She hated gooey wet crusts and she didn’t use spices either) I have never heard or seen anyone else make a double crust peach cobbler. And though it wasn’t picture cookbook perfect it sure was good hot from the oven or cold after setting.
