Crunch Bunch

"After fresh local berries and corn have long bid adieu, consider
munching on their freeze-dried counterparts. Freeze-drying involves
freezing fruits and veggies, then transferring them to a vacuum chamber
to remove the water content. The result? Shelf-stable, preservative-free
crispy morsels with their health-promoting components intact. With this
process, there is virtually no loss of color, flavor, or important
nutrients and antioxidants. To help keep sugar calories in check, choose
unsweetened varieties."
