DIRECTIONS

  • In a food processor, puree the dried apples with the sugar, until the mixture resembles "chopped nuts".
  • If using the apricots, puree without adding the sugar and follow steps 6-9.
  • Put the water in a double boiler and sprinkle in the gelatin. Leave to stand for 5 minutes.
  • Now simmer the water in the bottom of the double boiler and dissolve the gelatin.
  • Once dissolved, slowly add to the apple puree and mix well.
  • Collect the puree into a ball and place on a large sheet of cling-film, gently flattening with your hand into a square.
  • Now place another sheet of cling-film on top and, using the rolling pin, gently roll out into a thin squarish sheet about 1/12 inch thick (you should see through it when held up to the light).
  • Rest on a wire rack and carefully remove the top sheet of cling-film.
  • Stand in a warm place to dry out.
  • After eight hours or so, turn over and gently remove the bottom sheet of the cling-film and leave to dry again.
  • TO DECORATE: Cut each sheet of fruit into equal width strips and decorate with fresh fruit, melted chocolate, writing icing, edible flowers etc.
