Amazing tart yet sweet fruit leather. Great way to use up rhubarb!
2 cups chopped rhubarb
2 cups of chopped strawberries
2-3 tbsp honey
Blanch the rhubarb in the microwave quickly.
Take your strawberries and rhubarb and using a food processor or hand blended puree them well.
Add 2-3 tbsp honey of honey to the mixture, depending on how sweet you want it.
Line a cookie sheet with plastic wrap.
Spread the puree evenly to just a 1/4 inch in thickness, making sure there is plastic showing all the way around the edge of your sheet.
The puree can be dried in a 150F degree oven or in a food dehydrator. If you like, you can turn your oven on as low as it can go every hour, then turn it off and let the residual heat dry out the leather. You are not cooking it at all, there is no “safe” temperature – other than please don’t crank the oven UP- so to save electricity you don’t have to leave the oven on continuously. But DO leave it shut to keep that heat in.
This can take anywhere from 6-8 hours in the oven. When the leather peels away from the wrap, is still slightly tacky when you touch it but your finger doesn’t leave a mark, it is done.
You can roll it right up in the plastic and cut it into little rolls. They will stay in the fridge for up to a month!
