fruit rolls

as a treat to share at school, miss bean wanted to bring fruit rolls. they are easy to make, waiting for them to dry is the hardest part, eating them is the best part! they even got the teacher’s seal of approval!

fruit rolls
4c fruit of choice
2 bananas
1/4 – 1/2c white grape juice depending on fruit

puree until smooth, the consistency should be somewhat thick. taste to test sweetness, you can add maple syrup if needed. spread evenly with an offset spatula onto a silpat lined baking sheet (unbleached parchment should work too), about 1/8 in thick. dehydrate at 140 degrees for 6hrs or set oven to the lowest setting, with door cracked, for the same amount of time or until the fruit is tacky to the touch but not hard. peel off baking sheet and cut the dried fruit and parchment into 2 inch strips, roll and tape to seal. store in airtight container. unroll to eat. smile.

experiment with other fruit combos, we used mixed berries and bananas, i may even sneak a bit of greens into the next batch.
