The ingredients may be a bit uncommon....but the theory is the same, no matter what fruit you use, so make cherry leather...or orange leather...or....well you get the idea.
PUREES, FRUIT LEATHERS & CHIPS: Fruit leathers are dried leathery sheets of pureed fruit. Fruit chips are made from crisp fruit leather that breaks easily.
Both have tangy, concentrated fruit flavor that makes them a favorite snack for anyone, especially handy to pack in a lunch or rucksack.
Much of the following information about making purees, fruit leathers and chips and the individual recipes are excerpted and adapted from University of Alaska Cooperative Extension Service Bulletin P-228, "Fruit Leather"
PUREE: To make berry purees, rinse berries, drain, put in a blender and blend until the consistency of thick puree. Most berries do not need to be cooked. Salmonberries and highbush cranberries have larger seeds and should be put through a sieve after blending to remove seeds.
Spread puree onto oiled sheets, dehydrate until leathery for berry leather, or crisp for berry chips. Store in airtight container.
