Fruit Leather

Makes 1 Sheet

Here’s a healthy and easy snack for the whole family (great for road trips!) with very little prep time required.

Before You Start

Preparation Method

1. Set oven to 170°F Dehydrate Mode.

2. Cook fruit in water for about 10–15 min at a simmer until soft.

3. Using a blender or food processor, puree the fruit with the remaining liquid until very smooth.

4. Add a little more water if needed to get a consistency thin enough to slowly pour out of the blender.

5. Pour out onto a silicone baking mat on a cookie sheet and spread it evenly across pan. It will be very thin.

6. Dehydrate at 170°F on Dehydrate Mode for 2½-3 hours, until the edges of the fruit leather can be pulled off the mat.

7. Cool completely before trying to peel off mat. Make sure the entire surface of the fruit is set, a slight tacky feeling but not wet.

8. Remove it from the pan and allow to cool to room temperature, then cut into strips.

9. Store rolled in parchment and then plastic wrap in the refrigerator

FLAVOR VARIATION

Use 1 cup dried apricots, chopped into small pieces and increase the water to 2 cups.
