Homemade Fruit Leather

Last week, I found myself with 60 apples.  I was pretty positive that we couldn’t eat them all before they went bad, so I decided to make some apple fruit leather.

I started by prepping the apples – washing, peeling, coring and slicing.

I did about 30 of the apples to start with.  The sliced apples were put in the largest pot I own and I added just a bit of water to assist with the cooking process.  I brought the water and apples to a boil and then let it cook for about 15 minutes.  This made mashing up the apples easier.

I then put the cooked apple mash into my blender in batches to get a good puree.  I then put the heat on the pot again and started taste testing.  I did not want to add much sugar so I ended up with less than 1/3 cup.  I would add a bit in, stir and taste test until I was happy.

I lined my lipped pans with microwave safe plastic wrap and then put the apple puree filled pans into the oven at 170 F overnight (12 hours).  You know its done when it is not sticky anymore but is not crunchy.

I let the leather cool in the pans and then pulled them.  To store I rolled them up and put them in the fridge.  With the 30 apples I ended up with 4 9×13 pans and 2 9×6 pans.

Yummy!!
