I had *a lot* of unsweetened organic applesauce that I bought during a weak moment at Costco, so I decided to get rid of some jars by making all natural fruit roll-ups!
There are loads of recipes and instructions online, and I used advice from many sources. Since I thought the fan in the back of our dehydrator would blow parchment paper around, I rolled five of my stainless steel trays with oven-safe plastic wrap. I set the temperature at 68°C/140°F.
On each of the five trays, I spread ~2 1/2 cups of applesauce from the centre outwards, in a rough rectangle. I chopped up some of the cherries, bananas, and apples I dehydrated last week, and added some shredded coconut. Spreading the fruit on the applesauce in different arrangements, I decided to keep 2 of the trays plain, with nothing added.
After 6 hours, we have delightfully chewy fruit leather. My favourite is the cherry, banana, apple and coconut sheet, but they’re all tasty!
