BLACKBERRY MANGO FRUIT LEATHER

blackberry_mango_fruit_leather_a_House_in_the_hills_1

I had a childhood obsession with fruit leather, it was my favorite snack ever! And when I say fruit leather I mean fruit roll ups, the content of which I don’t even like to think about. So recently I made my own! Mango and blackberry goodness. They taste even better than the fruit leather of my childhood, I’m a little bit obsessed. I do have to warn, they’re not difficult to make by any means but they’re more time consuming than the average recipe I post on here. Mostly because they have to cook for 4-6 hours at a low heat. So this is a recipe to make on a Sunday funday when you’re craving an adventure in the kitchen. There’s something so satisfying about unpeeling homemade fruit leather and tasting the fruits of your labor though (hehe), I highly recommend! Hope you love. xx- Sarah {more after the jump}

MANGO BLACKBERRY FRUIT LEATHER

vegan + GF

Ingredients

2 ripe mangos

2 cups blackberries

Method

- Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

- Peel and cut mangos into cubes.

- Combine mangos and thoroughly rinsed blackberries in a high powered blender. Blend until pureed.

- Squeeze mixture through a cheesecloth or nut milk bag (preferred) to remove seeds. This step is optional but I found them to be SO much better without the seeds, it was well worth the extra effort.

- Line an 11 x 16 inch baking sheet with wax paper.

- Use a spatula to evenly spread puree on baking sheet, giving it a gentle shake to help smooth mixture out.

- Place in oven for 4-6 hours or until the top is no longer sticky and fruit can easily be peeled from pan.

- Place a piece of wax paper over the top and firmly press into fruit leather. Cut leather into strips, roll up and tie with bakers twine!

    These look great! I wonder how they would turn out using a dehydrator. I may go that route simply because of energy costs.

    OH EM GEE! I was so obsessed with *fruit roll ups* as a child, and am SO making these!! Now, hopefully, my daughter can be obsessed with a healthier version! Ok, not too obsessed, because I don't have time for too many of these ;) I see a ginormous batch in our very near future! Thanks!

    I'm mildly addicted to fruit leather so we can't keep it in the house. We used to buy the giant box at Costco until Thom realized we were going through it in about a week because I had a bad habit of eating fruit leather for breakfast. Anyway, as soon as I can get my hands on some decent mangoes, I'mma give this a go. And probably eat it all within a 24 hour timespan. ;)

    What you said was very reasonable. However, think on this, what
    if you were to create a awesome post title?
    I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid., but
    what if you added a title to maybe get a person’s attention? I
    mean blackberry mango fruit leather – A House in the Hills is kinda
    plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how
    they create news headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or
    two to grab readers excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion,
    it would bring your blog a little livelier.

    Um tried this and it is impossible to get the wax paper off. The wax paper also stuck to the pan as well. I suppose we should have tested only one cookie sheet first as opposed to four of them. Anyone else try this recipe? Any tips?
