Fruit Leather

We’re well into blackberry and apple season now. Fruit leather is a lovely way to preserve these fruits and an easy recipe to make with children.

Just peel and core your apples, stew in a pan with blackberries or any other fruit.

Once cooked, purée with a stick blender. If you like you can sieve the purée to remove any seeds (though as you can see, I don’t bother).

Spread thinly and evenly on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicon mat and dry either in a dehydrator (40°C) or at the lowest heat in your oven.

Once completely dry cut into strips and roll or you can cut into shapes. How long it takes varies depending on the appliance you use and temperature. To speed things up obviously dry at a higher temperature.

I said they’re a good way to preserve but fruit leather never lasts more than a day or two in our house…
