Hi,

 

Has anyone got a recipe for Fruit Leathers they are willing to share (idiot proof if possible).

 

Rationalising what's in the freezers so one can go (if I have 3 I fill 3)  I've come across assorted/mixed soft fruits and rather than crumbles etc thought about making Fruit Leathers.

 

None of the recipes I've managed to find indicate if it's possible with previously frozen fruit.  The recipes also seem to sometimes contradict each other.

 

Might be worth mentioning I do NOT have a dehydrator (yet !)

 

 

Failing is not a fault, refusing to try is

None of the recipes I have for leathers insist on fresh (rather than frozen) fruit, and they just suggest drying out in a very low oven for a long time (12-14 hrs). I would imaging if fruit is previously frozen, it may just take longer due to the increased moisture content.
