Strawberry Fruit Leather

Strawberry fruit leather is a popular snack for kids that can easily be made at home using surplus fruits.

Please be warned that while cooking this in your house the smell will be amazingly irresistible and likely make everyone very hungry. It could even linger a few days.

This recipe is ideal for people who grow their own strawberries or have access to economical bulk quantities. It is another option to preserve them asides from a jam.

Ingredients

5 cups strawberries

1/2 cups sugar

2 tablespoon lemon juice

Equipment

dehydrator

Recipe Directions

  1. Carefully remove the green leaves and pith core of the strawberries. Cut in half.

  2. Blend together the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice until smooth.

    Note: If you prefer a smoother fruit leather the seeds may be strained out. However, this will also significantly reduce the recipe yield. 

  3. Thinly spread the out the pure then cook for 3 hours until fruit leather is formed.

    Option 1 – Dehydrator

    Using the dehydrator solid sheets, thinly spread the strawberry pure (about 2 mm) until all the pure is used. Set the temperature to about 170 degrees F (75 degrees C) and set the timer for 3 hours.

    Option 2 – Oven

    Divide mixture between 2 large baking trays lined with silicone baking mats. Spread with a spatula to create an even layer. Bake for 3 hours in an oven set to 170 degrees F (75 degrees C) or until the fruit leather is no longer sticky. Rotate pans halfway through.

  4. Transfer the fruit leather to a cutting board to slice into strips in your preferred thickness. 

  5. Lay the fruit leather strips on sheets of baking paper a little wider than the fruit leather and gently roll-up.
