Apple Fruit Leather
Apple fruit leather can be made from fresh apples or apple sauce. Canned apple sauce can be mixed with more expensive berries to make more fruit leather. It is hard to obtain liquefied apple in a blender or processor so it is best to pre-cook apples in a pot until they are soft. Then, they can be easily liquefied in a blender.
- Apples, 1 kg (2.2 lb)
- Sugar, 200 g (1 cup)
- Cinnamon, 1 g (1/2 tsp)
1. Peel, core and dice apples.
2. Cook apples until soft.
3. Puree apple pulp in a blender. Add sugar and cinnamon.
4. Pour fruit apple onto parchment sheet.
5. Dry at 140° F (40° C) until done.
Testing. Test fruit leather by pressing against with your finger. Properly dried fruit leather is slightly tacky to touch, but easily peeled from the sheet. There should not be visible indentation. Cool the leather for 10 minutes, then peel away and roll. Properly dried leather will unwrap easily, the still moist spots will stick to the sheet. Wrap the fruit roll in plastic.
