Freezing Instructions

Paradise does not recommend freezing your candied fruit. It is generally not necessary since it lasts for 24 months if kept in a cool dry place. If you do freeze, the sweetener sometimes crystallizes. Before using candied fruit that has been frozen, we suggest you put the defrosted product in heated (not boiling) karo syrup. Turn off the heat, then let it sit in the syrup until the crystallization disappears. Now drain it to use in your baking.
