Strawberries in Many Forms.
I finally used the 20+ year old dehydrator that was sitting stagnant in my parents house to make fruit leather.
I drank my weight in strawberry juice yesterday and saved all the pulp to use just for this! I hate to throw out the pulp from my juicer but there’s only so many pulp burgers I can eat in a week, lol. (which is why I’m investing in a vitamix next month…no waste!)
We went strawberry picking over the weekend at Harlow’s in Putney, VT. The past few summers, it’s been our favorite place for raspberries & strawberries.
There’s really no secret to making fruit leather. I mixed a cup of strawberry pulp with a teaspoon or two of maple syrup and spread it out on parchment paper. Set it in the middle rack of my dehydrator for 8 hours, flipped it and let it finish for about another two hours. I would like to find some nice silpat to use in there…hey amazon.com, help me!

I would love to get a dehydrator to do something like this! Fruit leathers are so expensive at the grocery store. This is a genius idea
i’ve never purchased a dehydrator because i’m terrified i would never actually use it… you’ve inspired me however. the strawberries look tasty!
Is it me or is C. flipping you the bird up there with your juice pic? I never thought to make strawberry juice, it looks delish! We had a hard time picking at Harlow’s this year – there was like a jungle of weeds!! Heard Lilac Ridge has a great crop this year, maybe we’ll make it up there before the season ends…
Hahaha yea I secretly thought it was hilarious. And yes I know, Harlows was difficult this year. There’s got to be another two weeks or so left for picking, we should go for a playgroup!
