  • Apple fruit leather

    • sturlington on November 10, 2012

      I didn't think this recipe would turn out, but it came out exactly like a fruit-rollup. Which is not my favorite thing to eat, and my toddler wasn't too excited about it either. The taste is better, though, more like concentrated apples and less sweet. Using scissors at the end to cut into strips seemed to work best. A good use for too much apple butter, but I wouldn't make it regularly, as it requires at least 5-1/2 hours cooking time.
