Blueberry fruit roll ups.
Gabe approved👍. He is watching Star Wars: A New Hope, so can't be bothered to look at me😕.
Fruit Roll Ups
3 cups fruit
Sugar (optional, I didn't add any sugar)
Choose whatever fruit you want, we did blueberries, and put in food processor or blender until smooth. Add sugar to taste if you wish.
Preheat oven to 170, line a baking sheet with plastic wrap*. Pore the fruit purée onto the baking sheet. Spread evenly with a spatula. This is very important, my son really wanted to do this part, so half the sheet is thin and half thicker. I just had to cut half the sheet and leave the rest in the oven. Keep in oven 4-6hrs. Check on it and turn the pan every half hour to 45min. The roll ups will be tacky feeling, but not squishy when done. They will also be able to peel up from the plastic smoothly. When done lift plast wrap out of pan and set on counter to cool. When cool, cut in strips and roll up. Store in fridge.
*I know lining a pan with plastic wrap sounds weird, this is what the recipe said. You aren't cooking the fruit, just dehydrating, the pan doesn't even get hot. Make sure the plastic wrap goes to the lip of the pan so when it's done you can lift it out.
You could also do this in a food dehydrator, but I don't have one, so I used the oven. It makes 10, could be more or less depending on how thin you spread the purée and how big or small you cut the roll ups. I'm going to be sending these to school with my son as a special treat.Edited by Alice28 - 1/16/16 at 5:01pm
