Strawberry Fruit roll-ups, or fruit leather, are probably the kids’ favorite snack right now. Both get excited when they see the blender come out. The tricky part is the one year old is so slow eating his, big sister tries to take what he hasn’t eaten yet!
Strawberry Fruit Leather
1 lb Fresh Strawberries
2 tablespoons honey
Wash strawberries and remove the green stems.
Place strawberries and honey in a blender and puree.
Pour strawberry mix on a dehydrator tray with the fruit leather tray. Spread evenly.
Cook at 135 degrees overnight, or about 10 hours.
This is a bit trickier with an oven, as friends have confirmed that getting an evenly cooked roll-up is difficult. However, you can cook it on a very low oven temp on a parchment lined baking sheet. I would advise using a cookie sheet with no sides to allow for better air flow, or turn on the convection oven blower.
It will be done when there are no sticky spots. You want it to be pliable, not brittle.
Let cool completely, then peel fruit leather from tray and move to parchment paper.
|Little hands got to this before I could get my picture!|
Roll the paper and fruit leather together into a long roll. Cut with scissors into desired length. Store in an airtight container or zip top bag.
