Homemade fruit rollups or fruit leather. Easy to make, and can be done with many types of fruit.
Ingredients
  • Fresh strawberries (or apples, blueberries, raspberries, mango)
  • Juice of ½ to a full lemon
  • Sweetener of choice to taste (honey, xylitol, stevia, agave etc.)
Instructions
  1. Fill your blender or food processor with however much fruit you want to use. (I filled up my Blendtec till it was almost full).
  2. Blend until its a puree.
  3. Put the puree in a pot and simmer over the stove until it resembles a thick applesauce. This will take a while, and will reduce by about half.
  4. Stir about every 10 minutes or so.
  5. Spread the mixture on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silipat. (If you do a bigger batch like I did, you'll probably have enough to do at least 2 cookie sheets.)
  6. Spread the mixture in a very thin layer covering almost all of the parchment paper.
  7. Allow to dry in the oven at 170 degrees F for approx 3 hours. If not done (you can tell as its still saucy, and not peel-able), cook for longer.
  8. I cut into strips and re-roll into fresh parchment paper, or leave some as sticks.
  9. Store in an airtight container at room temp. I'd suggest moving to the fridge if not consumed in a few days.
