COOKING METHOD: Dehydrating
Course Snack
Servings 30 strips/rolls
Prep Time 10 minutes
Dehydrating Time 7 hours

Equipment

  • 1 Dehydrator
  • 1 Blender
  • 4 Fruit leather/liquid dehydrating trays

Ingredients
  

  • 6 kiwis
  • 6 strawberries (1 heaping cup sliced)
  • 1/4 cup honey or agave syrup

Instructions

  • 1. Peel kiwis and hull strawberries.
  • Combine kiwis, strawberries and honey in a blender. Blend until smooth. You should have 2 cups worth: add more fruit if needed.
  • 2. Pour ½ cup of mixture into middle of dehydrating tray. Tilt tray in circular motions to fully cover tray with a thin layer of mixture.
  • 3. Dehydrate at 135for approx 7 hours. When done, leather should be dry to touch.
  • 4. Once slightly cooled, peel leather off tray and cut into 2" strips (6 per tray). See below for further storage guidelines.

Notes

  • Water content of fruit naturally varies: If the mixture is too thick and does not spread well on tray (spreads in clumps and leaves bare spaces on tray), you may need to add a couple tbsp of water and blend again. 
  • If your leather is cracking once dried, the mixture may have been too thin (or dried too long)
  • You may need to adjust mixture amount per tray depending on your tray size and shape
  • Dehydrating time may vary (the thickness and water content of the mixture, as well as the humidity and altitude of your environment will impact dehydrating time)
  • It's easiest to pull off leather when slightly warm
