Mango Fruit Leather
This basic process will work for nearly any fruit that you’d like to make into roll-up leather. They have a great shelf life and make wonderful healthy snacks. This process can work in a conventional oven on the lowest setting, but the dehydrator circulates the air so the leathers dry evenly.
Serves: 6Hands-on: 50 minutesTotal: 12 hours 50 minutesDifficulty: Medium
- 1 ¼ lb. fresh chopped mango
- ¾ cup sugar
- Purée the mango in food processor or blender. Transfer the mango to a saucepan and add the sugar. Heat to a low rolling boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 30-45 minutes, or until thick and very little liquid remains. Stir frequently to prevent scorching. Remove from the heat and cool.
- Coat fruit-leather tray for your dehydrator with spray-on oil. Cover the oiled surface with purée no more than ⅛" thick. Dry at 135°F about 12 hours.
- Wrap in plastic for storing.
