Fruit leather is one of my favorite snacks. Making it is gratifying, and you’ll know what your family’s eating-only three wholesome ingredients!
3 cups fresh organic fruit, your choice
2-3 tablespoons local wild honey; you can substitute sugar or sugar-substitute
2 tablespoons of organic lemon juice
Step 1: Prepare three 12×18-inch baking sheets, backside up, with silicone baking mats — preheat the oven to 170’F degrees.
Step 2: Combine ingredients in a standing blender or food processor. Process until smooth. If you have a non-textured eater, strain the liquid through a mesh strainer into a clean bowl. Divide the fruit mixture into each pan, about 1 cup each.
Step 3: Using an offset spatula, create a very thin layer on each baking sheet.
Step 4: Dehydrate in your oven for 4-6 hours, or until fruit leather is no longer sticky, which will vary depending on your oven and humidity level in your area.
Step 5: Rotate the pans between oven racks and turn every hour until cooked — test by touching your finger’s tip.
Step 6: Remove from the oven. Cool and transfer fruit leather to a cutting board. Slice into desired sizes or shapes and wrap in parchment paper, wrapping, or wax paper — store air-tight.
