Dried fruit

Lately I've been on a tea kick.  To flavor my teas, I thought I would dry the hell out of some apples and lemons.  So I let them sit in the dehydrator for a few days and then the fun began.  I used a mortar and pestle to grind up the fruit, but it takes over an hour to do one lemon and even then, most of it is small chunks, not powder.  When I soak it in the tea, the chunks reconstitute and that isn't good eats.  So...suggestions on how I can powderize some dried fruit?

I think a food processor would be your best bet. But not a blender, they are better for liquids.

I have great luck with a coffee grinder. I have one just for spices.
