4 cup apricots, chopped
2 cup prune plums, chopped
2 tsp sugar
Wash, pit and chop fruit. Puree in blender with sugar. Yields 3 1/2

pan by covering with plastic wrap and securing with masking tape.
Pour puree evenly over the plastic. Place in full sunlight. Drying
time depends on the fruit, temperature and sunlight.

continue drying the next day. It may take up to 24 hours. Drying may
be finished in the oven if weather is unsuitable for sun drying.
Pre-heat oven to the lowest setting 150F. Turn off. Set puree in
middle. Occasionally reheat to maintain warmth.
The leather is ready when it peels easily from the plastic. To store,
roll in the plastic wrap, then in a sealed bag. At room temperature
it will keep one month. In the fridge, 3 months. 27 servings

Food Tips of the Week
Weight loss hints and tips
In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Use splenda instead of sugar.
Many recipes that need sugar can be changed to make use of a sugar replacement instead. It is not exactly the same so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work for every dish, but it does a decent job most of the time.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, onions and welsh onion)
The onion family is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific evidence obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to help with antiinflammatory effect, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be a part of every diet system.
