One of the best ways to store dried fruit and use it in all seasons is drying. The dried fruit has many properties and only loses its moisture to facilitate transportation and storage and increase lifetime.
The most important factors in preserving dried fruit
Temperature, moisture, and a container of dried fruit are the most important factors for their storage.
You should keep Dried fruit in a dry and cool place because the moisture provides the condition for microorganisms, fungi, and pests’ growth.
You can keep Dried fruit at ambient temperature and in the refrigerator. This is because storage in the cold temperature increases the lifetime of the dried fruit.
The package of dried fruit is also effective in their lifetime. The packages should be dry and clean. Plastic, clean containers with lids, vacuum packaging, and freezer bags are the best to store dried fruit at home.
You should keep dried fruit preferably in a dark place, because many dried fruits have antioxidant pigments and properties. They will lose their natural color and beauty by direct contact with light. Their mineral and antioxidant properties will reduce in this case. Therefore, it is better to keep them out of sunlight to protect the nutrition value of dried fruits.
