Homemade Fruit Roll ups

My friend Rachel, the domestic diva, told me how to make fruit roll ups this week and we have made them several times. It's so easy!

1.) Clean and core some fruit. (We did Cherries the first time and Apricots the second so we had to pull off the stems and take out the pits.)

2.) put the fruit in the blender and puree it. (The cherries were easy, but the apricots were so big and thick that we needed to add a few tablespoons of juice from the fridge before the fruit would start blending. We used cranberry-pomegranate juice and it was yummy!)

3.) tape some plastic wrap to a table outside in the sun on a hot day. (If it's not a nice day you can put it in the oven at 200 degrees.) Let the fruit cook in the sun all day. (it's hot enough here that if I put it out before noon the fruit is done before the sun goes down.)

4.) Once the fruit is dry and leather like all over you get some scissors and cut the fruit with the plastic wrap still attached into squares to be stored in a gallon sized zip lock bag. the fruit is good for up to 5 years!!! Gwen and I LOVE it!!!
