Fruit Leather Flavors

Before we share with you the five fruit leather recipes, allow us to remind you that making fruit leather is one of the easiest ways to enjoy your food dehydration experience. In fact, it is one of the easiest ways to use leftover and overripe fruits with a food dehydrator.

How To Begin

For all the recipes below, you’ll just puree the fruits and spread it on the drying trays before turning the dehydrator to 135°F and leave them to dry 4 to 8 hours until pliable or leathery. No sugar is needed because the fruits are generally sweet but if you’d like to reduce the tartness a little more feel free to add sugar to taste.
