Fruit Leather

Ingredients:

Choose your fruit. Remove seeds, pits, stems etc. then chop.
Taste a small amount to see how sweet it is. If it’s too sour/tart add a bit of sweetener to it as well.
For every 2 cups of fruit, add 1/4 c. water
Cook until fruit is soft and mushy (10-15 mins). Mash with potato masher into a good puree.
Continue simmering until puree is thick.

Directions:

Place a sheet of plastic wrap or parchament paper (not wax paper as it will stick) in the bottom of a cookie sheet.
Smooth a thin layer of pureed fruit with the edge of a plastic spatula.
Place in the oven to dry at the lowest heat, about 120F, for about 2 hours, or until dry, then remove and cool.
Peel off and roll in plastic wrap.
For variety, sprinkle with finely chopped walnuts before drying.
