Question Fav dried fruit?

The last thread about dried cranberries got me curious...

What is everyone's favourite dried fruit and what are some of the creative (or plain 'ol basic) things you like do with it/them?

OMG, okay I'm typing way to early in the morning....I accidently switched the "e" with "i" in the title of the poll...Boy am I embarrased!!!! Soooooo sorry, I can't seem to get to the poll via my origional post to fix it though!

It should read, "What is your favourite dried fruit"

My bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Apricots by far!! I buy this fantastic bread called Agean Apricot loaf at a local bakery and i am addicted to it! I also make a nice apricot loaf with no fat in it.

I should have said "other" because I like all of them. Some I like better in dishes and some I can eat right out of the bag.

I went with the dried cherries. I'm on a dried cherry kick right now. Of course, that might have something to do with living in a state that produces A LOT of cherries.

I always get the package of sunmaid dried tropical fruits with papaya, mang and pineapple. Love the three flavors together.

I love dried berries, as you can toss them in anything!
I do have a salad recipe that used dried bananas that is really yummy.
Check this one out: Whiskey Creek Salad
