I have never met a child who didn’t smile when offered fruit roll ups. Sweet and chewy, slightly sticky, they have always been a very popular snack choice with children of all ages.
For children with food dye or corn allergies, commercially produced fruit roll ups are not usually an option.
Fortunately, home made fruit roll ups are easy to make and delicious.
Try different fruit combinations. Our favorites are mango/guava and blueberry/cherry. And you can never go wrong with strawberry.
Fruit Roll Ups
A great way to use left over fruit.
Place fruit into a saucepan and cook on medium for ten minutes.
Add lemon juice to fruit, 1/2 tablespoon for 2 cups of fruit.
Put fruit in a heat safe blender or food processor or use an immersion blender to process fruit until smooth.
Pour fruit mixture onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet and spread evenly.
Bake in a 170 degree oven until the center is dry. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool completely.
Leaving parchment paper on, cut into strips and roll.
Store in a plastic storage bag.
