These prepared and ready to carry sweet treats are great for breakfasts on the run, lunch boxes, road trips and afternoon snacks. They stay fresh for several days, which will have you prepping once and stocked up with fresh and ready to go snacks for a few days. It’s so nice to wake up in the morning to precut fruit ready to carry to work or school. They are perfect after school snacks, no mess and no fuss.
I love this recipe it makes me happy because right now I have a whole bunch of fresh apricots!
And…does it need to be all organic? I have a hard time finding all organic fruits.
Organics are not necessary for the outcome of this recipe to be great.
Could you buy the fruit and freeze it, thaw it and then let it last a few more days? For example – I prepare 4 jars for monday-thursday, and then 3 freezer bags that I would take out and refrigerate thursday morning and transfer into the jars Thursday evening to last Friday-Sunday???
Just trying to get through the week. 🙂
Freezing fruit changes the texture of some fruit. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out. Be sure to use freezer safe jars or containers.
How long will this keep? Refrigerate?
I usually make 4 to 5 days worth at a time. Some types of fruit hold up better than others. If stacking different fruit, stack heavy first such as pineapple and top with lighter fruit such as berries.
