Strawberry Fruit Leather

So lately I have been seeing a lot of homemade fruit rollup recipes on Pinterest so Carter and I thought we would give it a shot. It turned out to be really, really easy! It's a long process but you really only have about twenty minutes of work.

What you need: 
A food dehydrator
Cutting Board

The dehydrator we used

 How to:

1. Wash your fruit

2. Remove all the stems and cut into small pieces.

3. Blend the strawberries up until liquid. These will have seeds in them so if you don't want any seeds, you need to strain them.
4. Pour onto wax paper or the plastic tray that comes with your dehydrator.
5. Set the temperature to 105 degrees
6. Dehydrate for 12 hours or until solid.

7. Cut into strips and store refrigerated.

We used two cartons of strawberries and tried some in the over at 200 degrees, the lowest setting, and it got burnt. Our fruit leather turned out very thin but we are going to try to figure a way to make it thicker without it spilling over the plastic tray. These things turned out really tasty and were gone super fast. Next time we are going to try more fruits and try adding cinnamon, lemon juice, or honey because these are all in a lot of other fruit leather recipes we have seen.
