Pate De Fruit shelf life
Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques
I have found they are fine if you can keep them open to dry out for long enough in a warm dry place. we coated our first batch in granulated sugar it took about three goes and a few weeks to dry out But they have kept well for months. It was also much easier when the weather was warm. These were apricot and apple combinations. We made one batch using elderberries and apple which did not like the granulated sugar and became sticky. I have used dextrose on these as it absorbs the moisture and it seems to be going ok so far. I think letting them dry for long enough before you package is very important. Im not an expert though.
