Buyer's guide

Check the sell-by date and buy dried fruit that has been sprayed with vegetable oil, not mineral oil. It is usually cheaper to buy individual dried fruits if you cook regularly.


Dried fruit is used by regular cake-makers and steamed pudding fans. It can also be added to mincemeat. However, most recipes benefit from controlling the proportions of the different dried fruits.
