If you don’t have a food dehydrator, you can dry fruit leather in a warm convection oven or outside if you live in a hot, dry climate. Properly dried apricot leather will keep for several years—that is, if you don’t eat it first!
Remove the pits from:
- 2 pounds apricots
You should be left with 6 cups of apricot halves. Place them in a blender with:
- 1/2 cup honey
Cover and blend until fully puréed. Pour onto a 14″ x 16″ silicone baking sheet with ridges and smooth with a spatula to fill the sheet evenly. Dry for 36 hours at 120°F/50°C in a convection oven. Peel the dried leather off the baking sheet, roll it up, then slice into pieces. Store in Ziploc bags.
Conversions: 2 pounds apricots = 1 kg, 1/2 cup honey = 125 ml.
