Who doesn’t love fruit leather? Still, those little single packages that they sell at the grocery store are expensive. But making it at home can be expensive, too, because almost all of the recipes call for an expensive food dehydrator. There has to be a better and less expensive way, right?
Yes, in fact, there is! It is possible to make fruit leather at home without a food dehydrator. You can use your oven. You may be a little bit worried, as there are recipes out there saying it takes up 18 hours to make fruit leather in an oven, but we found that it took a little bit under 5 hours. Not too bad! Just cut the fruit leather into strips comparable in size to the kind sold in stores and you get about 16 of them – and at $4 for fruit for this recipe, so that’s a big savings over what you would have paid for fruit leather at the grocery store.Print
