Making Fruit Leather
Fruit leathers, also called fruit roll ups, can be made from almost all fruits or combinations of fruits. Peaches, apricots, cherries, and nectarines are ideal for making fruit roll ups. Wash well, peel (if desired), cut into pieces, and puree fruit in a blender. Sweeten to taste with sugar or honey. Spread evenly, no more than 1/4" deep, on a cookie sheet. The cookie sheet should either be lightly sprayed with a vegetable shortening or covered with plastic paper.
