A recipe for making homemade apple fruit leather that is both delicious and easy.
Preheat oven to 170°F. Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
Core and peel apples. Chop into large chunks. Toss in lemon juice to avoid browning while prepping the remaining apples.
Add apples and remaining ingredients to a large saucepan or stockpot. Cook over medium heat. When apples are tender, use a potato masher to slightly mash the apples. Continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes.
Carefully pour mixture into a blender or food processor to purée.
Divide purée evenly between pans. Use an offset spatula to smooth out the mixture.
Bake for 3 hours or until leather is slightly tacky and no longer wet. (*Time will vary depending on the thickness of your mixture.) Every hour, rotate pans 180°F and swap rack levels.
Allow leather to cool before slicing. Using a pizza wheel or knife, carefully slice fruit leather into desired sizes. Wrap in wax paper. Store in an airtight container.
*I used Paula Red apples for this. Use whatever apple you like best that has a nice flavor.*Boiled cider may be omitted from recipe if you do not have it. Alternately you may use apple cider or apple juice in place of the boiled cider and water.An original recipe from Baked by Rachel
