I am adding a food dehdrator to my kitchen gadgets to help in OAMC stuff and I found this recipe in my search for lunch items. I am putting it here so I can find it later.
- 1 1⁄2 cups applesauce
- 1 small apple, peeled, cored and chopped
- 2 teaspoons dried oranges, ground
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- In a blender mix applesauce, apple, dried orange, vanilla and corn sryup until pureed.
- Pour onto solid fruit leather sheets.
- Dry at 135 degrees for 4 to 8 hours, or until leathery.
- Remove from sheets while still warm.
- Let cool slightly.
- Roll in plastic wrap and store in dark, dry cool place, or in the freezer.
We lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and because our oven doesn't go lower than 170F, we baked them at 170F for 6 hours and left it in the oven to cool. They came out great!
Made for the "My Three Chefs" game...my theme was dehydrator goodies (Dehydrator Delights :) ) - - - this was one of three fruit roll-up recipes that I attempted & I was very happy with the results ...it is the first time I have introduced another sweetener to my fruit leather while drying (the corn syrup - I only had dark on hand so that's what was used)...I found that it lent a lovely amber color to the roll - and a chewier more candied quality - very pleasing...I put this recipe in the machine with other mixtures and found that it took a bit longer to dry because of the additional sugar and "thickness" (which is to be expected...really a good 10 hours for me- but as you will find with dehydrating circumstance even with weather can change results with timing something and it has been humid here of late...:) ) These rolls came out exceptionally sturdy and neat looking...I felt very professional (lol) because I am normally very sloppy at presentation ...I was very pleased:)...I love this healthier way of "candy" making - Great recipe- THANKS ksilvan:) -a BIG HIT. Easy and you can't go wrong!
