Back in summer/fall I canned an obscene amount of apple sauce . The apple crop this year was amazing and I wanted to take full advantage of it! So here we are in the dead of winter and it doesn’t even look like I’ve made a dint into my apple sauce hoard. I canned regular apple sauce as well as blueberry/apple, strawberry/apple and raspberry/apple. And as much as my kids love apple sauce – they are getting kinda tired of it! 😬But that’s ok because then I can make fruit leather from the sauce! #winning
So out comes my Excalibur 4-tray dehydrator! I’ll usually start the leather around 5:00pm and let it dehydrate all night and in the morning it is good to go! I’m thinking of upgrading to a 9-tray dehydrator because these roll-ups are one of my bestsellers at the Boissevain Farmers Market in the summer.
I think these are a great alternative to the store bought fruit roll-ups because
- I know where all the ingredients came from
- It’s all real fruit
- They cost me significantly less than the store bought.
- They make my kitchen smell very good!
- I made them 😏
So if you have extra applesauce in your pantry and a dehydrator (you can also use your oven and a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper) I highly recommend making some of these!
