Preserving fruit in the sun such as dates, figs, apricots and plums has been practised for millenniums and dried fruit has remained an important ingredient particularly of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean diets. No need for dehydrators in ancient times, nature took care of everything!

Last month I was completely shell shocked to find out that I'd won a giveaway from The Vegan Cookie Fairy - an amazing box of vegan (and all gluten free BTW) snacks and a fantastic little pot of hand cream. I was so impressed with the contents, especially the chocolate covered pumpkin seeds, I decided to subscribe to the The Vegan Kind because it's so awesome to receive a surprise box each month, it's like Christmas twelve times a year!
