Basil Infused Strawberry Fruit Leather ~ Gourmet Edition

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Goodness, my pantry is smelling heavenly right now! (the home of my dehydrator)  I can smell the sweetness of the strawberries and the hint of basil dancing through the air.  I had fun making this recipe. Perhaps it was the act of infusing that made me feel all la-te-da, you know, real chef-like.  We all need our moments of glory and if I find mine in the act of infusing a herb into a fruit, well then so be it.

I love gathering information, tidbits, trivia about things, so I thought I would share a bit on basil.

Ingredients: made 8 gift pkgs


Above – straining the puree, removing the basil leaves after they soaked overnight.

    I want to know how to make leathers/ and gummies without using a dehydrator. I know a little about the oven method, but would also like to make the snacks just fruit and chia. The oven and chia option doesn’t seem to be documented anywhere! What do you think is my next step? I have my fruit prepared and stewed – I only added a little agave and my mixture is a wonderful texture. Now how much chia per cup (?) and then how long to let it sit before I realize I need to add more chia? I don’t like wasting any food – especially lovely strawberries/kiwi and oranges!
    Thanks for your help!

    I see you do not add lemon juice to maintain the color. Is there a reason?

    Hi! I have a power blender which would liquify the basil if I blended it up with the strawberries. Do you think the recipe would turn out if I did this, rather than letting the basil infuse overnight?…

      I have a high speed blender as well, but I find that with raw ingredients, some do best if they have time to really infuse and meld together. So I recommend infusing overnight but you can always try it and see what you think. :) Have a great weekend, amie sue
