Can Dried Fruits Be Frozen?
Dried fruits can be frozen very easily. However, repeated freezing, defrosting and re-freezing will cause the textures and flavours to deteriorate. For the best results, portion your dried fruits into freezer bags. Squeeze out as much air as you can before sealing the bag - if you have a vacuum sealer, so much the better! Then place the bags of fruit into a freezer-safe container with a tight-fitting lid before placing in the freezer. Dried fruits will last for around 12 months in the freezer.
