      This was really good with mango, but just okay with nectarines. Had the same problem as others, outer edges a little over down. Overall - 4 stars.

      My 5 year old just loved this! We made it as a rainy afternoon project and it turned out great! I used parchment paper instead of plastic wrap as I was afraid the plastic wrap may melt. We used very over ripe fruit that I otherwise would have tossed...too ripe to eat normally. We used Kiwi's and Yellow plums for the first batch, and added some red food colouring to make it more eye appealing. The second batch we used peaches and added some orange food colouring. It turned out great!! I made sure to spread very evenly, so the outer edges were as thick as the inside. As it cooked we peeled off some of the outer edges for taste testers as it got done quicker than the rest. The rest I cut into strips, wrapped in plastic wrap and froze. It thaws well and DD takes it to School in her lunch for a super sweet yet nutritous snack! Thanks for a fabulous recipe!!
