My mother never let me have Fruit Roll Ups and it’s probably for the best that she didn’t. Have you seen the ingredient deck? Not very clean. I do have a semi-sweet tooth and why not make my own. I say semi because ever since I went vegan I have no interest in anything sweet. Sometimes I have a Jujubes craving, but for the most part I have no interest in chocolate at all. Odd for a woman I know @MathieuLLF is more likely to have ice cream or chocolate than I am. I do however love fruit, especially pomegranate, oh yes. Most likely as it’s a fruit that my grandmother used to shell for me in Montenegro where I spent many summers. Good memories around this ruby fruit. This partly inspired me to make my fruit leathers.
- 1 pomegranate
- 1 banana
- 1 small golden delicious apple
- 1.5 cup jicama
- 1/2 lemon juice + pulp
I really had no idea how this was going to work and let me tell you it was incredibly watery with just the pomegranate and jicama. The banana and apple really added fibre that gave it a thicker appearance. The mixture made two trays, but I do think I could have used it all in one tray to make it super thick. It was a bit tricky to spread it out and not let it run over the edge.
Into the Excalibur it went at 115 for 12 hours, I think it could have been just fine at 10 hours. It was tricky to peel off the sheet at first, but then it went quite nicely.
Looks kind of like sausage doesn’t it? I swear it’s a fruit leather. I must caution that the seeds from the pomegranate do make this fruit leather rather bumpy – don’t say I didn’t warn you. If you make this let me know! I’d love to see!
