Fruit Leather Recipe
Apple Leather

1 1/2 lbs tart apples, peeled, cored and cut up
1/4 cup water

2 cups prepared apple puree
1-4 tbsp Honey or granulated sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)

Cook apples in water until barely tender. Drain. Run though blender to smooth.

Place puree in bowl. Add honey and cinnamon to taste. Stir well. Line 10x15" jelly roll pan with plastic wrap, using 2 sheets crosswise fashion so as to have plenty of overhang. Spread puree mixture over plastic. Dry in 150°'F (65°'c) oven overnight or for 8-10 hrs during the day, until dry and leathery. It iwll be stiff enough to pull off plastic wrap. May be turned to dry other side a bit. It should be pliable and stretch a bit as it is torn. Roll up with plastic to store in airtight container to freeze.

Note a 12x18"' pan may be used for 2 1/2 cups puree

Apricot Leather

1 lb apricots, halved and pitted
1/2 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 tbsp lemon juice, fresh or bottled
1-4tbsp honey or granulated sugar
