Food Dehydrator


  • 3 kg Plum

  • Pour prepared halves with sugar (at the rate of 400 grams of sugar per kilogram of pitted prunes) and leave at a temperature 71 F for about a day – to separate the juice. Given the sweltering summer, I put prunes on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator for this time.
    Plum in syrup
  • Drain the juice from the drain and weigh. Make a new syrup based on 1 kg of draining 400 g of sugar with 300 ml of water. In total, calculate taking into account the ready-made syrup from the plums. You should get about 900 ml of syrup.
  • Bring to a boil and turn off, let cool under a lid on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator for about 24 hours.
