A Word about Pectin:


Strawberry Fruit Leather

Pear Fruit Leather


Preheat oven to 150º F or to its lowest setting.

Slice and core fruit. In a medium skillet, saute fruit with honey over medium heat until most of the moisture has evaporated (this will vary depending on the type of fruit and its moisture content).  Take care to not scortch the fruit or burn the honey in the cooking process. Line a large nonstick baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. In a blender or food processor, puree cooked fruit to a somewhat smooth consistency and spread onto lined baking sheet to achieve a relatively uniform 1/8" layer of cooked fruit paste. Place into preheated oven and cook for 6-8 hours at 150º F or your oven's lowest temperature setting. Cool at room temperature, cut into desired sizes and shapes, peel and enjoy.
