Strawberry-Lemon Fruit Leather

Directions

  1. In a food processor or blender combine strawberries and sugar; cover and process or blend until smooth. Press mixture into a bowl through a fine-mesh sieve (about 3 cups); discard seeds.
  2. In a large heavy saucepan combine strawberry puree and lemon zest. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, until mixture is thick enough to mound slightly on a spoon and reduced to about half (1 1/2 cups) (35 to 40 minutes), stirring frequently.
  3. Preheat oven to 170 degrees F. Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with parchment paper; coat parchment with cooking spray. Spread strawberry mixture in prepared pan. (For a dehydrator, lightly oil two leather dehydrator sheets. Divide strawberry mixture between prepared leather sheets, spreading to coat evenly.)
  4. Bake 10 to 11 hours or until fruit leather is dry (surface may be slightly sticky), rotating pan occasionally. (For the dehydrator, dehydrate at 135 degrees F for 12 to 13 hours. If necessary, turn fruit leather over during the last 1 hour to allow bottom to dry.)
  5. Using parchment, lift fruit leather out of pan; cool completely. Cut fruit leather into 16 pieces and roll pieces into spirals; wrap in plastic wrap. (For the dehydrator, peel fruit leather from each leather sheet. Roll into a spiral; wrap in plastic wrap.) Store at room temperature up to 2 weeks.
