It takes a long time to make this fruit snack but, for the most part, you can leave it unattended in the oven at a low temperature until it sets. For younger kids, cut the leather into fun shapes, using cookie cutters.

YIELD: 10 servings
TIME: 8 hours

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups ripe fruit, chopped
  • honey, to taste

METHOD

Preheat oven to 150°F or the lowest temperature your oven will go. Line a baking sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper.

Puree the fruit and honey in a blender until smooth. Pour fruit mixture onto prepared baking sheet and spread to about a 1/8′′ thick. Pound the baking sheet on the counter a few times to make sure the fruit mixture is evenly distributed.

Place baking sheet in the oven for 6-8 hours, until pan is set and the center is not tacky. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Gently peel off the fruit leather from baking sheet. Cut into squares or strips. Store in an air-tight container.
