Perfect for school snacks, and using up fruit that is going overly ripe in your fruit bowl. This recipe is SO simple, keeps 2 weeks on the bench or months if you wrap it tightly in the freezer. It does take some time too cook as it needs to dehydrate, but you can totally turn the oven off and go out and just pop it back on when you come back in.
- As much spare fruit as you have, peeled, sliced and pureed.
- After the paste is fine, taste the mixture and depending on your preference or the sweetness of the fruit add 1-2 tbs sweetener of choice. Then cook on medium-high (OR 100C in the thermo for about 10 mins) for 20 or so mins. This is a step you can skip but it does speed the cooking process..
- On baking trays lined with waxed paper, spread the mix out as fine as possible and bake for 4-6 hours at 100-140C (depending on how low your oven will go, or your patience..) until the fruit on the trays it totally dry and not wet in the middle.
- Allow to cool & cut in to strips, on the baking paper ready for lunch boxes. These will keep in an airtight container for a couple of weeks, or in the freezer for a couple of months if you wrap them tight.. Good luck keeping them that long! x
