Introduction

Homemade fruit roll-ups are a delicious, easy portable snack for everyone's lunchbox! This is doubly easy if you have a dehydrator and an offset palette knife :-), but a low oven is a viable substitute!

Ingredients

    8 medium apples (any kind), peels left on, chopped roughly
    3 tbsp maple syrup
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    pinch salt

Tips

Alternatively, spread mixture on rimmed cookie sheets lined with parchment and dry at 170F for 2-2 hours. Cool in the oven for 30 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and cool to room temperature


Directions

Preheat the oven to 350F.
Toss apples and maple syrup in a large casserole dish.
Cover and roast for 2 hours, until apples are extremely soft.
Allow to cool slightly, then add apples and any liquid to a food processor and puree completely, making sure peels are finely ground (alternatively you can run this through a food mill).
Stir in cinnamon and salt and scrape back into the casserole dish.
Re-cover and bake another hour, then remove the lid and bake a further 30-40 minutes, until very thick.
Spread on parchment-lined dehydrator trays to about ⅛ thick and dehydrate for 6-8 hours, until pliable and slightly tacky. Turn off the dehydrator and let trays cool completely before moving*.
Cut into strips and roll up. Keeps in an airtight container for 1-2 months.

Serving Size: Makes one 15x10 sheet, 10 pieces
