Fruit Leather

Hey there!

Happy Summer to you!

I just got back from the farmer’s market and brought home a few goodies.

One that I’m really excited about is that I found really ripe fresh peaches for only $1.50/pound. The regular peaches were $2.50/pound. I got a big discount for getting the ones that I have to eat today.

Some were a little too ripe (I left those behind) and there were bruises on some, but nothing that is going to make it taste bad.

I knew I could just cut them up today and freeze them to put in some fresh green smoothies later.

Or…I could make fruit leather!

I opted for the fruit leather this time around.

It’s so super simple to make too. All you need is peaches, a blender or food processor and a dehydrator.

Here is a printable recipe for you. Below are the pictures.

Fruit Leather

Ingredients

  • 4 very ripe peaches

Instructions

  1. Rince off peaches.
  2. Remove pits.
  3. Blend in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  4. Poor onto a dehydrator tray with a telflex sheet to keep it from dripping through.
  5. Dehydrate at 110 degrees for about 24 hours until it's solid and peels off nicely. It should have a leathery feel to it.

First…

Put your fresh, juicy, really ripe, washed and pitted peaches in a blender (or food processor).

Then after they’ve been liquified, pour it onto a dehydrator tray with a telfex sheet on it. If you don’t have a telflex sheet, you can use parchment paper (but not wax paper, it will melt….ewww).

Smooth out the peaches across the sheet and put it into the dehydrator.
