1. Can your dehydrated fruits be used in drinks, cocktails, share plates, grazing boards or snacks?
Yes of course! All of our dehydrated products have a wide range of uses, including flavouring hot and cold drinks, filling for cheese platters and grazing boards, healthy snacks, festive craft and cake decoration. If you want to go one step further, grind into a powder and add to salts or sugars to flavour soups, stews and sweet baked goods.

2. How long do your products last?
Our dehydrated fruit will keep for at least 12 months if stored correctly. Store your dehydrated citrus in a airtight glass or plastic jar with a tight-fitting lid. If you keep them in the packaging we send you, expect a 6-month safe storage time. Keep them in a cool, dark cupboard. But what are you keeping them for anyway? Pour a G&T and pop one in!

3. Why are dried and dehydrated fruits darker / lighter than others?
This all depends on the sugar content of the fruit. When drying, fruit may become darker if the sugar content is high.  We always aim for our citrus wheels to be as light as possible while ensuring the fruit is fully dried for storage and transport. However we must ensure complete dryness is acheived and therefore sometimes our lemons and limes are darker than others.

4. What safety measures do you use when preparing?
Our dehydrators and drying trays are completely pulled apart and thoroughly cleaned between each batch. The dehydrator is then run until all internal components are hot and dry, ensuring a second sterilisation. We use commercial knives, mandolins and cutting boards that are also cleaned and sterilised between every batch.

5. Do you choose fresh fruit for dehydrating?
We choose fresh, locally sourced fruit with the help of our awesome produce suppliers. We fully inspect every piece of fruit to make sure it meets our high standard. We need our candy to look and taste great! 

6. Do you package your product immediately?
Our dehydrated citrus is packaged immediately after the dehydration process. We use resealable packaging for all of our products.

7. Why do limes sometimes have yellow skin / peel - They look like lemons?
When limes ripen, the skin changes from green to yellow when fully ripe. When yellow, limes have developed the lime-y sugars that flavours lime to the taste we know and love. It is hard to find yellow skin limes in the fruit shops because consumers want to see and buy green skin limes. Also, as limes ripen the skin becomes a little thinner making the shipping and handling process a little but harder. Fruit stores longer when unripe and green. We won't discriminate between limes. In fact, riper, yellow tinge coloured limes will often end up being wasted and thrown out and we definitely don't want to see that happen.
