Homemade Fruit Leather / Fruit Roll Ups

PS - don't ask me why the formatting on this got all screwy... I have no idea! I shared this on another blog, copy & pasted and the formatting is all whacky! Oh well, I give up!

I must say… talk about easy! I really thought it was going to be difficult, but it wasn’t!
This specific fruit leather is a berry-blend… I used:

2 lbs of strawberries
4.4 oz of blueberries (standard small package size)
and apx 1/4-1/2 lb of grapes (enough to make 32 oz of puree)
You can use almost any fruit. Try the fruit first, and if it seems a little tart, or needs some sweetening, add about 1 tbsp of honey or corn syrup. Taste test to see what is good for you!

Puree all ingredients (blender, food processor, etc)

With Dehydrator:
  • Grease your fruit leather tray (Pam works for me)
  • Pour your fruit puree on the fruit leather tray
  • Set dehydrator between 130-140 degrees
  • Let dehydrate for 4-8 hours (time depends on the thickness of your fruit leather, which fruits you are using, etc)Without Dehydrator:
  • Set your oven to the lowest setting possible (probably around 140 degrees, or aim between 130-140 degrees)
  • Place heavy duty plastic wrap or wax paper on baking sheet
  • Pour fruit puree on a thin layer (or to desired thickness) on the tray
  • Dehydrate for 4-8 hours.

Now, I’ve never actually done the oven method… let me know how it turns out! Here is an article with more on dehydrating with an oven
