fresh dried fruit??
Trader Joe's hasn't carried my favorite, dried pears, in years. For a while I'd find them now and then in smaller supermarkets and some larger ones, but they stopped, too. I found www.apricotking.com, which grows its Bartletts and other fruits and nuts in California. I've been getting their dried fruit every few months for about 3 years now. Pears, apricots, cherries, white nectarines, peaches....all are fantastically large and moist. I cannot imagine a better quality dried fruit.
