If you have a dehydrator and a high-powered blender, this is a simple recipe that makes a great snack for kids. Make sure to use the apple peels in the recipe, as the peels contain many of the valuable nutrients found in apples.
- 2-3 apples
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
- Pinch of cinnamon
- 2 tsp dark honey
- 1/4 cup water
- Dab of vegetable oil
- Wash, peel and chop the apples into small pieces, saving some of the peelings.
- Placed chopped apples and the saved peelings in a high-powered blender, along with the honey, water, cinnamon (to taste) and lemon juice (which prevents the fruit from browning).
- Turn the blender on until you reach a chunky-smooth, applesauce-like consistency.
- Dab a paper towel with vegetable oil and coat the dehydrator's plastic tray. Spread the apple mix evenly onto the dehydrator in an even layer, iron out any high parts with the back of a spoon, and place the lid on the dehydrator.
- Set the dehydrator to 135F and let is go for 3 hours before checking for doneness. After this, check the rollups frequently until they reach the desired doneness, without baking. Experiment with the thickness of the apple layer for best results with your machine.
- Once dry, peel the fruit rollup (fruit leather) off the tray and place it on a cutting board. Using a pizza slicer or knife, cut rows and simply roll them up. Tip: if making in bulk, use parchment paper or plastic wrap to roll up the fruit leather.
