How to Kill Mold on a Dried Plum

Pesky mold creeps its way onto the surfaces of many fruits, nuts and vegetables, and will ruin food by spreading if it's not eliminated. Dried fruits such as plums are particularly susceptible to mold. Killing mold on dried plums is a simple process that can be accomplished with a few small steps.

Fill a bowl with 16 ounces of vitamin C water (available at most supermarkets and drugstores).

Submerge the moldy dried plums in the water and leave on the counter to soak overnight.

Remove the dried plums from the vitamin C water. Rinse the plums with regular bottled or tap water.

Place the dried plums on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes until they have dried again.

Leave out to cool. Once the dried plums are cooled, place in freezer storage bags and store in the freezer. Freezer bags and cold storage helps keep the dried plums from acquiring mold.
