Homemade Fruit Leather is one of those things that’s so easy to make, you wonder why you even buy it in a store. Plus, when you make it at home you can control the flavor and what ingredients are in them or more importantly, what are not in them – no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
It’s easy in the summer to have too much fruit to eat yourself. Fruit Leather makes it easy to use up extra fresh fruit, canned fruit, etc. Almost all fruit tastes good together. If you want to get fancy, you can add fresh herbs to your puree (try peach and theme or mint and berries) or make an interesting flavor like strawberry balsamic with black pepper.
Some people do not like seeds, so if you’re in that category, strain your puree! Also, I think it’d be fun to do a batch of something light colored, like an apricot, peach, etc. fruit and a dark berry one. You could pour out the light puree onto the mat and add a little bit of the dark to make it look tie dyed.
