I have been making these for years and my kids love them! Who am I kidding? I LOVE them!! You can use lots of different fruits for this too. Apricot, strawberry, peach, apple, plum...the list goes on! They are all natural and perfectly healthy & sweet, you will never want to buy store bought again!!
2 cups fresh fruit, sliced
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce ( I add this no matter what flavor I am making, it helps with the fruit leather texture)
Combine all ingredients in a blender, & blend till smooth.
Line 2 baking sheets with plastic wrap and pour half of the mixture on each baking sheet. With the back of a spoon evenly spread the fruit mixture to a very thin layer. Bake in oven @ 200 degrees for 5 hours or until leather is dry and starts to pull away from wrap. I like to cut mine into about 6x6 in squares, but cut them to whatever size you like. Store in a ziploc bag or airtight container. Oh my fruity, chewy, goodness!!!
