If you’re old like me…
Then you definitely remember eating Fruit Roll-Ups as a child.
I disticntly rememeber eating a whole box of them when I was younger. They were just so darn good! Well what if I told you that you could make your own at home?
Yes it’s true! All you need is fruit, lemon juice and sugar. Yep that’s basically it!
I decided to use strawberries and I also made another batch using mangos (so good!)
STEP 1: Puree the fruit. I took my strawberries (about 4 cups chopped), lemon juice (2 tablespoons), and sugar (3/4 cups)and combined in my blender until smooth. I then transfer to a saucepan and let simmer for about 15-20 minutes stirring occasionally.
STEP 2: Preheat your oven to about 150 to 200F. I took a baking sheet with my silicone mat and with an offset spatula I spread the fruit puree over my silicone baking mat.
STEP 3: Bake for abour 3-4 hours until the fruit has the consistency of fruit leather. Let it cool completely.
STEP 4: Roll up strips and store or eat and enjoy!
COOL TIP: I love Michael’s and I bought a mini stapler set and used it to cut out mini butterflies of my homemade fruit leather. I used it to top on my homemade icecream, macarons and other sweet treats I make. Kids love it!
