SAMPLE RECIPE: Mixed Berry Leather
Mix sweet and tart berries such as blueberries and raspberries to balance sharp flavors. If desired, remove the seeds from blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries—or leave them in for texture.
1. Preheat a food dehydrator to 125° to 135°F. Wash the berries; pick over and remove stems or moldy berries. Hull the strawberries and cut in half. Leave the other berries whole. In a blender or food mill, process the berries, sugar to taste, and lemon juice (if using) into a smooth puree.
2. Spread the puree on lined drying trays in an even layer, 1/4 to 3/8 inch thick. Dry the leather until firm but pliable, 4 to 8 hours. Press lightly in several places to check for soft or sticky spots and continue drying if needed.
3. Turn off the dehydrator and peel the leather from the liner while still warm. When almost cool, cut the leather into 8 pieces, and roll each portion in a piece of parchment or wax paper.
Up to 3 months, wrapped, in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
INGREDIENTS: 8 cups berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, or other berries) 2 tablespoons sugar 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or 1 teaspoon chopped dried lemon zest (optional)
