Fruit Leathers

A delicious, natural snack!


Any favorite fruit

Choose fresh, ripe fruit. Wash and remove stems and pits. Peel the fruit and cut out any bruised sections. Puree in a blender until very smooth. Sweeten to taste by adding 1 tablespoon of honey, fruit juice concentrate or corn syrup per quart of puree. DO NOT USE SUGAR AS IT WILL CRYSTALIZE AS IT DRIES. Spread on fruit leather sheet and dehydrate for 8 to 10 hours or until leathery.

To prevent leather from sticking, coat the fruit leather sheet with any vegetable spray or oil. You may also line it with plastic wrap. DO NOT USE PAPER OR FOIL.
If you experience uneven drying, tilt and shake trays until puree is evenly distributed. If leathers seem too brittle, you have probably over dried or you may need to adjust your vent settings. (Please remember the settings are always suggested. Adjust them to suit your needs.) If your leathers look dark, you may add some lemon juice or vitamin C to the puree. Adjust the consistency of your puree with fruit juices or other thicker purees. If the leather spoils, the leather was not dry before storing or was exposed to moisture during storage.
