Ways to use freeze-dried fruit...dry?

adenhailemariam | Mar 23, 2014 05:16 AM

My big discovery about a year ago was using crushed freeze-dried raspberries to coat chocolate cake pops. It was an intense reddish color (I wanted "natural sprinkles") and an intense raspberry flavor. It was pretty awesome!

I bought freeze-dried strawberries later and wasn't too impressed but yesterday I bought freeze-dried pineapple--again, intense and unexpected flavor!

I was rushing so I used the pineapple as a garnish on a raw avocado lime pie and it was NOT cute. People thought it was a cracker (my peanut butter cup pie was much more popular haha). I think that in the future I would crush the pineapple into a powder and...do what?

What are some ways I could use crushed freeze-dried fruit? At the moment, I'm not that interested in rehydrating it.

I was trying to find something online to expand on my first use of the crush raspberries and I found nothing but I just found this: How to Make Fruit Powder and Why You Should Bother

And other stuff buy Googling "how to use freeze dried fruit powder"

I was also a bit worried that though freeze-dried fruit had one ingredient--the fruit--the freeze-drying process would be something I wouldn't like. But the first link about seems to show that at least dehydrating fruit is pretty innocent :)
