    We also omitted the sugar and used unsweet applesauce. Kids loved it.....even the neighbor kids who normally eat junk :)

    We used this recipe and put it in our food dehydrator. We omitted the 1/4 cup sugar, just mixed strawberry puree, lemon juice and applesauce (also unsweetened) and this came out perfect! So for anyone who wonders if you can make this without added sugar you can :) Thanks for posting this!

    I made as described and put it into a dehumidifier (sp?) They have specialized inserts for making fruit leather and it was better than tying up my oven for 5 hours...lol! FYI I did try both the oven and dehumidifier and the dehumidifier worked better.

    Of course you don't have to plastic wrap. There are many alternatives if you think about it for a minute. Use a silpat mat, or non-stick bake-ware or non-stick spray (i.e., Canola oil with lethicin. Note: lethicin is what makes these cooking sprays more effective than oil alone). My recommendation is to use a non-stick jelly roll pan sprayed with cooking spray. Wipe cooking spray to distribute and leave just a thin coating. You could also try parchment paper or waxed paper, but I'm not sure about how well that will work--probably better with leathers that aren't too wet as a puree.

    This is a great recipe! Thanks so much for posting it. I'll be making this stuff every strawberry season. I did do something stupid though I'd like to warn about. I thought perhaps wax paper could sub for the plastic wrap and let's just say that doesn't work so well lol Took me an hour to seperate the leather from the paper little bit by bit.
