Banana Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit Leather

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Banana Prunus Armeniaca Fruit Leather … sounds impressive, doesn’t it?  Prunus Armeniaca is another way of saying apricot. So what do we know about the all mighty apricot?

Many apricots are cultivated in Australia, particularly South Australia, where they are commonly grown in the region known as the Riverland and in a small town called Mypolonga in the Lower Murray region of the state.  In states other than South Australia, apricots are still grown, particularly in Tasmania and western Victoria and southwest New South Wales.  Hmmm, anyone want to go on a field trip with me? hehe

There is no doubt that apricots all by themselves are delicious but they are small and it can take quite a few to make enough volume to make fruit leathers.  One way to help stretch the mighty dollar and the fruit leather is to add some bananas to the mix.  Pureed bananas make for wonderful leathers because it is so pliable and works as a great binder.  But besides all of that… the combination is wonderful together.



Below is a sample of how I wrap my fruit leathers for storage…
Photo above:  place two pieces of plastic wrap on your counter top, overlapping them to create a large sheet.
Photo above:  Fold the edges of the plastic wrap onto the fruit leather, tapering in the ends a bit, as shown in the photo.
Photo above:  Fold the end piece over onto the fruit leather.  This will be the end that you start rolling.
Photo above: Roll the leather nice and tight all the way to the very end.  This should keep your fruit leather nice and sealed.
