Freeze-drying is one of the most minimal processing fruits can undergo. The method preserves the integrity of the nutrients and is a better and more healthful choice as compared to canning. The process involves freezing first the fruit, and then placing them in a low-pressure vacuum. By doing this, you remove the water more quickly and efficiently than regular drying, which gives you a much better fruit structure. This product can be stored at room temperature and has a very long shelf life, and the resealable tub makes it easy for you to take what you need and save the rest.
