Leather up for TASTY TUESDAY!

4 c. pureed fruit
2-4 tbsp. honey (optional)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

In a blender, puree fruit which has been washed and pitted but not peeled.

Cheat at this point and cook down the fruit to make a thick fruit sauce.
It should coat the back of a spoon without running off.

Cool it down.

Place plastic wrap on a cookie sheet with sides. (I wet the edges of the cookie sheet so plastic wrap will stay in place.)

Pour 2 cups fruit mixture on each cookie sheet. Makers 2 trays.

Place in oven at 150 degrees (or lower, depending on your oven) for 8-10 hours.

When fruit is dried to leather consistency, roll up fruit and tear off to eat.

ok we would have had pictures of it, but .... it was a long hurricane and we ATE IT!

Cheapo serves one inch rolls. I think they would be better as 3 inch rolls.

Hi Sugar, I love this when we get apples and peaches from the orchard. JD hates it. But he will eat carrot leather. He is so weird.... and BTW, the carrot leather he likes... is 3/4 applesauce.... but don't tell him!

YUM, Mama makes these for herself all the time. She never ever thought about making carrot leather though! What an AMAZING idea!

Koly, carrot, green bean, beet, pumpkin...all make great leather, just mix with applesauce. You can forego the applesauce if you add cornstarch and gelatin.

Don't know for sure what happened to the comment we made... It said it was published, but doesn't seem to be showing up. We came over from Sugar's Blog Hop. Your fruit roll-ups sound great! Grammy has always wondered about how that was done. She plans to try it soon while the fruit is still fairly cheap. The Country Corgi Crew
