- Tip the strawberries and apple into a saucepan. Put the pan over a low heat, you don't need to add any water. If you've used frozen fruit, juice will run out as they thaw. Heat gently, keeping an eye on the pan until the strawberries start to break down, you can put a lid on the pan if you like, this keeps the steam in and helps the fruit break down. Cook until the strawberries have softened and given up their juice and the apple is soft.
- Take the pan off the heat. Purée the contents with a stick blender or in a food processor. Squeeze the purée through a sieve into a clean pan, pushing as much pulp through as possible.
- Put the pan back on a low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the purée thickens enough to leave a clear patch on the base of the pan when you pull a spoon through it. The more moisture you drive off now, the shorter your drying time will be.
- Heat the oven to as low as it will go. Pour the purée onto a lined baking sheet (we use a reusable silicone tray liner) and spread it out to a thin layer, the purée should be thick enough to look opaque.
- Put the tray in the oven and dry until the surface is no longer tacky when you touch it, but the leather is still flexible - don't overcook it or it will turn brittle. This will take several hours depending on the oven temperature. If it is very hot and sunny you can air-dry the leather, or use a dehydrator.
- Leave the leather to cool to warm and then peel it carefully off the tray. Trim off the raggedy edges. Roll the leather up, then cut the roll into sections, using scissors is easiest. Each of these will unroll to make a strip. Keep the strips individually wrapped and airtight. The offcuts can be chopped up and used in baking, or snacked on.

- Clean and prep the fruit: Rinse the fruit. If you're working with stone fruit, take out the pits. Chop the fruit. If you're working with apples or pears, peel and core them, then chop. If working with grapes, de-stem them. Taste the fruit before proceeding. Note how sweet the fruit is. If very sweet (ripe Concord grapes, for example) you won't need to add any sugar. If still a little tart, you may need to add some sugar in the next step.
- Boil the fruit with water, then mash: Place the fruit in a large saucepan. Add 1/2 cup of water for every 4 cups of chopped fruit. Bring to a simmer, cover, and let cook on a low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the fruit is cooked through. Uncover and stir. Use a potato masher to mash up the fruit in the pan.
- Season with sugar and spices, if desired: Taste the fruit and determine how much sugar, lemon juice, or spices to add. If needed, add the sugar in small amounts (1 tablespoon at a time), to your desired level of sweetness. Add lemon juice 1 teaspoon at a time to help brighten the flavor of the fruit. Add a pinch or two of cinnamon, nutmeg, or other spices to augment the flavor, if you'd like. Continue to simmer and stir until any added sugar is completely dissolved and the fruit purée has thickened, another 5 or 10 (or more) minutes.
- Purée the cooked fruit: Put the mashed fruit through a food mill or chinoise. Alternatively, purée the fruit thoroughly in a blender or food processor. The purée should be very smooth. Taste again and adjust the sugar/lemon/spices, if necessary.

- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Combine the fruit and sugar in a blender. Add the lemon juice to taste (use 2 tablespoons for apples or bananas) and puree until smooth.
- Transfer the pureed fruit to a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium low and cook, stirring occasionally at first and then more often toward the end, until most of the liquid evaporates and the mixture is very thick, 35 to 45 minutes. Be careful: The mixture may splatter.
- Line a 12-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat or nonstick foil. Use an offset spatula to spread the fruit on the mat or foil into a thin layer. Bake until barely tacky, 3 hours to 3 hours, 30 minutes.
- Transfer the baking sheet to a rack and let the fruit leather cool completely. Peel off of the mat or foil. If the leather is still moist on the underside, return it to the oven, moist-side up, until dry, about 20 more minutes. Lay the leather smooth-side down on a sheet of wax paper and use kitchen shears to cut it into strips on the paper. Roll up the strips and store in zip-top bags for up to 1 week.

- Apple-Ginger: 3 large apples, peeled and chopped, plus 1 1/2 teaspoons grated ginger
- Spicy Mango: 2 large mangoes, peeled and chopped, plus 1/8 teaspoon each salt and cayenne pepper
- Preheat the oven to 150 degrees F (65 degrees C). Cover a baking sheet with a layer of plastic wrap or parchment paper.
- In the container of a blender, combine the sugar, lemon juice, apple and pear. Cover and puree until smooth. Spread evenly on the prepared pan. Place the pan on the top rack of the oven.
- Bake for 5 to 6 hours, leaving the door to the oven partway open. Fruit is dry when the surface is no longer tacky and you can tear it like leather. Roll up on the plastic wrap and store in an airtight jar.

20 KICKASS FRUIT LEATHER RECIPE IDEAS FOR SOME FRUITY FUN
Estimated Reading Time 8 mins
- Strawberry Fruit Leather. We’ll start simple with a classic and much-loved strawberry fruit leather. In my opinion, you can never really go wrong with strawberry flavored things.
- Apricot Fruit Leather. This apricot fruit leather literally has two ingredients. Two. It might not be the healthiest with the added sugar, but you could adjust that dependant on the amount you want to use, or keep it sweet and reserve it for treat time.
- Blueberry Banana Fruit Leather. I always put banana and blueberries on my porridge in the mornings, so this flavor combination makes me think of that, and I would probably have it as a little late morning snack.
- Peach Fruit Leather. This recipe can be used with any fruit substituted in, but peach is used in the example, and I love the flavor of peach so I reckon I would go for that.
- Pumpkin Apple Fruit Leather. Now, this pumpkin apple fruit leather sounds like the loveliest little autumnal treat. I love the combination of ingredients and flavors and think the maple syrup is a nice addition both as a sweetener and as an extra flavor.
- Spicy Strawberry Fruit Leather. This is like a grown-up version of a regular strawberry fruit leather, and I think it is a genius idea. It can be challenging to balance sweet and spicy, but I think this spicy strawberry fruit leather recipe looks like it does so just perfectly.
- Peach Raspberry Fruit Leather. I’ve never seen a fruit leather quite as pretty as this peach raspberry one, and I am so into it. It is such a cool idea to leave the two mixtures separate and then marble them together, creating this effect instead of an orangey colored combination of the two fruits.
- Spiced Orange Fruit Leather. What better time of year to try out this spiced orange fruit leather recipe than during the festive season. Of course, you could make this whenever you want to, but there is something about spiced orange flavors that just screams Christmas to me.
- Strawberry Lemonade Fruit Leather. This strawberry lemonade fruit leather sounds like such a delicious treat and, being inspired by one of my favorite drinks, and I am ready to make myself a batch right this second.
- Plum Fruit Leather. Plums aren’t a fruit that I buy often, and I am not sure why because I really do like the taste of them. It doesn’t seem to be a flavor that is used to much, which is why I think this recipe is a nice option for something a little different.
