Tips * When picking kiwis, even if it is for drying, make sure that they are ripe, firm and without any blemishes. You will unfortunately not be able to use the forgotten fruit in your fruit bowl for drying as these will be overripe and not good candidates for dehydration. * Your dehydrated kiwis can still look pretty without having to use sulphur dioxide. Make an ascorbic acid dip by combining one part of water with 2 tablespoons ascorbic acid and dipping your fruit into the mixture before dehydration. Not only will your dehydrated kiwis look just as good as the ones in the shops, but this method will also restore some of the vitamin C which is lost during dehydration. * Try not to store your dehydrated kiwis in the fridge but if you have no choice, make sure that the container is airtight otherwise moisture will creep in and make your dehydrated kiwis soggy. * To protect your dehydrated kiwis from sunlight, seal them in an airtight bag with a ziplock and then put them into a brown paper bag before storing them in a cool, dry place. * Dried kiwis tend to taste a bit tart but you can remedy the taste by using a little bit of sugar or honey before or after the dehydration process.
