Dehydrators: 201

Homemade Fruit Roll-ups
These are super easy to make, you just need ripe fruit and a blender.... and your dehydrator of course! They are so great if you have left over fruit that you're not going to get to in time or some that is too soft for eating, but perfect for fruit-rolling! Simply spray your fruit roll-up tray (that comes with your dehydrator) with a non-stick spray and blend your fruit until it's completely pureed. Pour the pureed mixture on the fruit roll-up trays and smooth it out until it's even all over the tray. Put in the dehydrator- see manual for time amount (mine was about 6-7 hours depending on how thick you layer your tray).Here are some sample fruit concoctions:
  • 4 strawberries
  • 1 peach
  • handful of black berries
  • 1 plum
  • 1 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
Another one:
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 2 cups applesauce
Another one:
  • 1 apple, cored not peeled
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 peach
  • 1 nectarine
  • 3 strawberries
** After it's done drying, they peel up really easily from the tray and I just tear mine into pieces and keep them in an air tight container... but they don't last long!
