Homemade Fruit By The Foot

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

4 cups mixed berries (I used raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries)

1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice or water

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon honey (you may need more if your berries are really sour)

*If using frozen berries, omit the apple juice and substitute 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Simmer for 20 minutes, until the berries have popped and some of the liquid has evaporated.

Pour the mixture into a blender, then carefully blend until smooth.

Line 2 rimmed baking trays with a SilPat or parchment paper, then pour half of the fruit mixture through a fine mesh sieve and onto the first tray and half onto the second. Use a spatula to lightly spread the mixture evenly across the baking sheet, to about 1/8 inch thick.

If you have a dehydrator with a fan in the back, these will only take about 3 hours on the high (150 degrees) setting. Without a fan, they’ll take about 8-10 hours on 150 degrees. I would assume that a convection oven would also take less time, but have not tried it yet.

You will know they’re done when you touch them lightly with your finger and they are no longer sticky. If the edges get a little too brittle and dry, you can brush a tiny bit of water over it and will be good as new!
