Fruit Leather

Ingredients:Fruit-Leather-featured-image

2-4 cups of your favorite fresh fruit

I’ve had the best results with Mango, Strawberry & Raspberry

 

Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to 170°

Cut the fruit into small chunks & puree.

Line a baking sheet with wax paper or plastic wrap

(170° won’t melt the plastic wrap).

Spread the fruit onto the lined sheet. It should be fairly thin, almost see through.IMG_20140429_200230_394-300x224

Place in the oven for at least 4-5 hours.

If it is not done, put back in for another 2-3 hours or as long as needed.

When it is finished it should not leave any impression when touched.

I recommend plastic wrap, it peels right off when done.

To get the nice look of wax paper strips:

Cook on plastic wrap, fruit from the plastic wrap & place on a sheet of wax paper, on a cutting board,

cut into strips with a pizza cutter & roll

Tie with a string – very cute!IMG_20140429_200714_442-300x224

Experiment with different fruits, fresh fruit will always work best.

There are so many ways to do this. What is your best tip?
