Chili Pepper Peach Fruit Leather ~ Gourmet Edition ~

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I love buying little gifts for my husband, not only because I love him so much but because he finds joy even in the smallest of gifts.  For instance,  while I was out grocery shopping a few days ago, I came across the most beautiful chili peppers and I knew instantly that Bob would love them.   I really don’t know much about peppers, which ones are hot or mild or what to do with them exactly but they were just to pretty to pass up.  Once I got home with them, I arranged them on the countertop, asking Bob to close his eyes.  He patiently waited for words, “Ok, you can open then now!”  And when I did,  his face lit up for he found them as enticing as I did.  His first words were, ” You need to make a leather with them!”  His wish is my command so within minutes the blender was purring away with another wild concoction brewing in it.

I dipped my tasting spoon in the puree and took a tasting.  Ooooh sweet…OOOOOH HOT! lol   I got a little nervous because I know flavors intensify while in the dehydrator but it was too late now,  I had to move forward with it.  Bob tasted the puree and had the same reaction but assured me that he liked it.  In the end,  I have to admit that I / we really enjoy this leather.  As you take a bit and suck on it,  the sweetness of the peach hits you first …. but like most things in life, this is the calm before the storm.  lol  Because not long after the sweet, calming peach… in rolls the fiery pepper storm.   WOWZA!  Bob kept asking for more so I knew it was a hit.   We then shared the leathers with some Mexican landscapers who are doing some work for us who said they like picante (spicy) food and it was a hit.  They loved it!  Shew!  If you’re not afraid of a little adventure in life,  and you want to spice things up (literally),  I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and give this recipe a try.

Chili peppers actually have several important health benefits that are essential for good health.  Here are a few…

    This sounds wonderful. How many trays did you use for this batch? I have a few hot peppers still in the garden, so I think I will give this a try.

      Hi Mandy,

      I used two trays. I always add the amount of puree that the fruit leathers makes and for me in general I use 2-2 1/2 cups of puree per tray. It will always depend on how thick a person wants to make their leather and what type of dehydrator they have. I hope you try and let me know if you do. Have a great day! amie sue
