  • 4 cups fruit chopped (apples, berries, peaches, pears)
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons sweetener of choice optional


  • Preheat the oven to 150F or the lowest temperature your oven will go, and line a 11 x 17 rimmed baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Place the fruit, lemon juice and sweetener (if using) in a food processor or blender and puree until the mixture is smooth.
  • Pour the puree onto the lined baking tray, spreading out evenly using a spatula.
  • Place on a low rack in the oven and cook until the fruit feels dry to the touch and peels easily from the parchment paper, about 6-8 hours.
  • Remove from oven and allow the fruit leather to cool completely, at least one hour.
  • Use a pizza cutter, knife or scissors to cut into thin strips with the parchment paper still intact. The parchment paper will carefully peel off when you’re ready to enjoy them.


Storage: Fruit leather is best stored tightly wrapped in the refrigerator. Theoretically, homemade fruit leather is shelf-stable at room temperature but any slight moisture left can make it mold.
