You Make Your Own Food? Fruit leather 10/1/11

We made grape fruit leather with mom’s grape crop this year. There wasn’t enough to make a jelly or juice. A simple process. Clean the fruit. Run through a processor. Press through a sieve. Taste liquid and sugar to taste. Pour onto parchment paper on cookie sheets. Place in oven on lowest setting. Cook until the thickest parts are just barely tacky to the touch. When cool, roll up the parchment paper. Cut off a section and snack away or pack in a lunch.

Grapes!

The caught strainings


Drying in the oven. When dry, simply roll up.
