Basic Strawberry Fruit Leather

Basic Strawberry Fruit Leather

2 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
2 tablespoons honey
pinch Fruit Fresh (or use a teaspoon or two of fresh lemon juice)

In a food processor or blender, add strawberries, honey and Fruit Fresh. Process until very smooth.

Pour mixture onto a fruit roll-up dehydrator sheet lightly coated with cooking spray, spreading the puree with an off-set spatula to an even thickness.

Place into the dehydrator and dry according to the manufacturer’s directions until the fruit leather is dry to the touch, but still pliable - we used the 135 degree setting and our leather was done in about 4 1/2 to 5 hours.

When done, carefully peel off the fruit leather and roll the warm piece up in a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap. When cool, store in an airtight container.

Makes 1 large round.

  1. happy 4 year anniversary, joe! how many pounds of butter, flour, and sugar does that translate too?

    you certainly have a lot to show for it.

    with the fruit leather, do you think baking in a regular oven at a low temperature would work?

  2. Sweetie - It should. The temperature needs to be fairly low though, otherwise the leather would end up brittle.
