  • 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.

  • Preheat oven to 170°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.)

  • 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°F for 12 to 13 hours. If necessary, turn fruit leather over during the last 1 hour to allow bottom to dry.)

  • 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.
