80--- Mixed Berry Fruit Leather

Fruit leather, fruit "roll-ups", fruit jellies, whatever you want to call them, you know what I'm talking about. You may associate them with your lunch box as a child, or your child's lunch box now.

I must admit that I'm not a big fan. They get stuck in your teeth. But when I found that you could make your own without a dehydrator, I had to try them. AND they turned out very tasty. But they still get stuck in my teeth.

Try any berries, fruit, etc that you like!

Mixed Berry Fruit Leather
Makes 8 servings

1 cup strawberries, stemmed
1 cup blueberries
1 Tbsp honey

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a blender or food processor, combine berries and honey and blend until smooth. Pour mixture onto prepared sheet and spread evenly and thinly with a spatula.

Bake for 3-5 hours or until mixture is dry to the touch. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Use scissors to cut the leather and paper into 1 1/2" wide strips. Roll up strips and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
