Fruit Leather Roll Ups

Makes a lot Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 8 hours 30 minutes   Rated:

I used to make fruit leather for my kids years ago, and although it was a bit of a fiddle there is something quite satisfying about it. It is way cheaper than buying it ready made, and of course when you have 5 kids, cheap is what you need. So, this is a bit of a more upmarket, grown up version. We did a couple of different fruits for the testing. It is easier for you to understand what the cooked puree should resemble than to give specific times on every fruit. The oranges were particularly lengthy to do, but the end result was worth it. You really need to get a pourable custard consistency to the puree before moving onto the dehydrating stage. As long as you keep that image in mind, you should be fine!

Then as to flavours and options, there are so many!! Here are just a few suggestions. We loved the ones we did. What will be your favourite??

Fruit and doTERRA oils to match

Oranges: ginger, cardamom, cinnamon bark, vanilla, mandarin, tangerine

Strawberries; rose, geranium, vanilla, lavender, wild orange, black pepper

Plums; cardamom, cinnamon bark, clove, lavender, vanilla, wild orange

Apples; cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, clove, lemon, wild orange

TIPS:

It is best to use a silicone oven mat to dehydrate the fruit leather. This will make it much easier to peel away.

Once the fruit leather is done, you can lay it on a piece of baking paper and then roll it up. This will ensure no sticking for storage purposes.

Be careful with the amount of oil you use. A general rule of thumb is 2-3 drops, but with clove oil for example, I would only recommend 1 drop. With the citrus oils, you can be a lot more generous.

If you are trying to get your kids to eat more veggies, include some spinach or carrots in the mix. Just make sure they are fully blended. The colours will be slightly different of course, but they will never know.

Using an actual dehydrator is perfect if you have one. Just follow the instructions for the appliance.

Store in an airtight container, out of the fridge.

Need

  • 1 Kilo fruit of choice, (this is the weight after all peel, pips, cores etc removed)
  • 100 Grams honey
  • doTERRA Oils or your choosing BUY
  • 30 Grams flavourless oil (I use grapeseed)

Do

1  

Prepare the fruit, removing seeds or stones, skin where necessary, cores can be included to be honest. Place into the Thermomix bowl with the honey and cook 15 min/Varoma°C/speed 4./spatter guard or simmering basket in place.

2  

Blend until smooth, 30 sec/speed 8. Check the consistency and cook longer if it is too liquid. Add the doTERRA oils of your choice and the grapeseed oil and blend 10 sec/speed 8.

3  

Spread across as many trays as you need to have a thin layer. I do recommend a silicone mat for this as mentioned above.

4  

Place into a 80°C oven for up to 8 hours. Or use a dehydrator if you have one.

5  

If there is any stickiness left when you attempt to peel the fruit away, return to the oven until that stickiness has gone. It should just roll up. (Clever name!!)
