Peach Leather

Peach Leather 1

Another great way to use all those peaches!  Peach leather is a delicious and healthy treat at our house.  It’s even more fun when you can make it with your kids at home!  You can try using other types of fruit too!


5 cups  peaches (blanch if the skins don’t come off easily)

2 tbsp. sugar or honey

2 tsp. fresh lemon juice

Puree in blender or food processor until combined.  Pour onto dehydrating trays made for making fruit leather 1/4 – inch thick or line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper and spray with Pam.  In dehydrator, dry at 130 degrees for 8-10 hours or in the oven at the lowest setting (about 170 degrees) for 5-6 hours.  After 3-4 hours and the edges are firm and easy to lift, flip over  and continue drying.  Leather should be done when there aren’t anymore soft spots left, but still flexible.  Tear into large pieces and store in large gallon plastic bag.
