Peach Harvest Fruit Leather

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Sweeteners are always an area of controversy.  I have readers who send me emails questioning some of the sweeteners (raw agave, raw honey, dates, maple syrup, etc) that I use in my recipes. I too find it overwhelming as to all the information that you can find that supports and degrades each and every one of them.   So, I stand on my firm belief… make the best possible choice with your knowledge and use it in moderation, the sweetener that is, not your knowledge.

 I chose to use real organic maple syrup in this recipe because of the flavor profile that it offers. For some reason the thought of peaches and maple syrup sounded so warm and yummy in my mind.  So, I thought I would share some of the good things that I have read about it.  This viscous amber liquid with its characteristic earthy sweet taste is made from the sap of the sugar, black or red maple tree.

As sweet as all of this sounds, keep in mind that at the end of the day, maple syrup is still just liquid sugar, so regardless of its health benefits, be sure to use maple syrup in moderation.

Ingredients: yields 3 1/4 cups batter

Preparation:

When I made these fruit leathers, I dried them in large circles.  I then decided to cut them into triangles, just to add a little variety.   When I wrapped them, I laid them down on a piece of plastic wrap and start to tightly roll them up starting at the wide end first.  I thought they came out great.  I then wrapped a piece of twine around them to hold them closed.

    Hi Amie Sue. I have a great deal of frozen fruit lying around. Can I defrost and use frozen fruit for making fruit leather?

    Hi Amie Sue,

    Thanks for all those delicious recipes. I want to try that Peaches Harvest Fruit Lather but I was wondering if we need to peel peaches before proceeding?
