Fruit Leather

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with plastic wrap. Tape down edges of plastic wrap at the corners. Pour applesauce into the prepared baking pan, spreading into an even 1/4-inch-thick layer.
  2. Bake for 12 to 13 hours or until fruit leather is dry (surface may be slightly sticky), rotating pan occasionally. (For a dehydrator, lightly oil a leather dehydrator sheet. Pour applesauce onto the prepared leather sheet, spreading into an even 1/4-inch-thick layer. Dehydrate at 135 degrees F for 12 to 13 hours or until fruit leather is dry [surface may be slightly sticky]. If necessary, turn fruit leather over for the last 1 hour of dehydrating to allow bottom to dry.)
  3. Using the edges of the plastic wrap, lift fruit leather out of pan; cool completely. Roll fruit leather into a spiral; wrap in the plastic wrap. (For the dehydrator, peel fruit leather from leather sheet. Roll into a spiral; wrap in plastic wrap.) Store at room temperature for up to 1 month, chill for up to 3 months, or freeze for up to 1 year. Before serving, cut into 24 pieces.

That's parchment paper. I use it all the time to bake.

plastic wrap shouldn't melt at 170 degrees F. you can cover a casserole containing tomatoes in a glass baking dish with plastic wrap and then cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees. the plastic keeps the acid in the tomatoes from reacting with the foil and the plastic doesn't melt.

Plastic wrap? Really? How about parchment? Seems like melting would be a problem with plastic or waxed paper. Otherwise this seems like a simple, good idea.

It looks like waxed paper to me, thought the wording is "plastic"....I agree that would be a concern.

Won't the plastic melt to the pan when it gets hot?
