Fruit Leather

Here's an idea for that getting-too-old-to-eat fruit that you'll probably throw out....make fruit leather! It's super easy and fun and makes a healthy snack!

Fruit Leather

Fruit(s) of your choice (I used peaches)
2-3 Tbs. honey
1 1/2 Tbs. lemon juice

Set oven to lowest temperature possible. Fill your blender about 2/3 full with the fruit (pits removed, skins are okay). Add honey and lemon juice (give or take a little, depending on your taste) and puree the mixture. Place plastic wrap to cover the inside of a jelly roll pan, and pour the puree mixture onto the plastic wrap. Spread evenly to desired thickness. Put pan in oven and bake for 7-10 hours, depending on thickness of fruit leather and temperature of oven. I baked mine on convection for about 8 hours. Be sure the plastic wrap does not touch the hot oven racks. You can eat it all right away like we did, or roll it up in the plastic wrap to save it.
