How to make your own fruit leather in the oven
Author:
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of pureed fruit - I used apple and a little plum (apple, strawberries, stone fruit all work well) - you can mix them together.
  • 2T sugar (depending on how sweet you want your leather)
Method
  1. Make sure your puree is super smooth by blitzing it with a food processor or blender.
  2. Add sugar and puree again.
  3. Line a biscuit tray with baking paper.
  4. Spread the pureed fruit evenly all over the lined tray. It should be no more than half a centimeter thick.
  5. Place the tray in the oven at 60*c for a fan forced oven and leave for 4 to 6 hours until the surface is no longer sticky.
  6. Turn off the oven and allow the leather to cool.
  7. Use Scissors to cut into long strips.
  8. Store in an airtight container.
Notes
When deciding how much sugar to put in, remember that the final leather will intensify what ever flavours are in the fruit. If the fruit is sour, then the leather will be very sour, and if the fruit is sweet, the leather will be very sweet.
