I'm very partial to dried apricots, but I also like dried bananas now and then - I prefer them to fresh bananas. Just once in a blue moon I'll buy a dried mix with pawpaw, apple, mango etc in it. I've tried dried cranberries - can't really take to them. And I can't stand dried grapes or currants in any form! (Little dead black flies!) I never use dried fruits for cooking. They're just snacks for me.

if you haven't tried dried pineapple, do yourself a favor and get a hold of some. it's like eating candy, but with the benefits of fiber. so it's like geriatric candy.

remember that most commercially dried fruit has preservatives on them, often a sulphur compound, so be wary if you or your kids have asthma.

I agree with buckytom. Banana came in a close second with me.
