Using it all: Drying Apples - Videos

Description

The Penn State Extension Agricultural Business team has identified having "excess fruit and vegetables" (beyond direct sales and wholesale) as a significant challenge for specialty crop producers. Adding value by drying excess produce results in extended shelf life and an alternative consumer offering.

In this video, we will first discuss why farmers might consider adding value to their surplus. We will then discuss the steps of preparing, producing and packaging to convert fresh apples to dried slices.
