How to Make Fruit Leather
These are delicious fruit leathers. When you taste them, you can hardly tell the difference between them and “Fruit by the Foot”.
All you need is your favorite fruit and if you want to make it brighter, a little bit of lemon juice. If you want to make it green, just add spinach that you won’t even taste.
Fill your blender with about 4 cups of fruit.
Add one tsp of lemon juice.
Blend and taste to see if it’s sweet enough. If not, add honey.
Pour onto a non-stick dehydrator sheet and smooth it with a soft spatula.
Put it in the dehydrator at 100 degrees. Wait until it’s chewy.
(We dried it for a whole night and a whole day that made it harder to chew than I wanted.)
Peel the leather off and put it on parchment paper.Cut them together into strips. Then roll!
If you want to make it rainbow, which is my favorite, make a few kinds of fruit and line them up in stripes on your non-stick sheet. Mine were apple/pear/banana/spinach, strawberry/banana, pineapple and mango.

I have a dehydrator but not sure what a non-stick sheet is for it. I assume it’s not parchment paper since you mention that later in the post. Can you clarify?

Paraflexx sheets come with the Excalibur dehydrator. They work well for fruit leather, but there is a plastic component to it. Parchment paper works great as a non-stick sheet. Thanks for the question, Kathleen.
