Dried Fruit Treats

December 8, 2017

If you have a sweet tooth,  next time you’re in a mercado keep an eye out for a display like the one above.  I love to snack on the dried fruits, some of which are sweetened and some are not.

The vendor here also sells nuts and various candies like gumdrops (gomitas) and gummy bears. I imagine both of those are made with gelatin, so not vegetarian friendly.

But you can enjoy all of the dried fruit and nuts. My favorite is the candied ginger, what’s yours?
