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!
