Peach Raw Fruit Leather

I decided I was in the mood for a fruit leather and I had peaches on hand, so one thing lead to another and there you have it (24 hours later!) peach leathers. Super easy to make, but hard on the wait time.

I took four peaches, removed the pit, ran them through the food processor until smooth, added the juice of one lime and two tablespoons of maple syrup then spread it out on my special dehydrator sheet. You can apparently use parchment paper, but that’s a) costly and b) wasteful.  You can use agave or any other liquid sweetener. I suggest liquid just because it’s easier to mix in.

TIP: I spread it as thin as I could and flipped after 12 hours. You should keep an eye on these babies to make sure the colour has changed from wet to dry. It’s easy to rip them if you don’t spread it thin enough. In this instance, too thick is not a good thing, it will result in an incredibly long dry time and who knows if it will really work.

Happy eating!

  1. I picked up a basket of peaches at the farmers market this weekend that I hadn’t really had any special plans for but now I do. I love fruit leather! I bet the lime just makes the peach sing! Thanks for the recipe :)

  2. Looks yummy! My parents used to make fruit leather and other dehydrated fruits and veggies when I was a kid, but I don’t currently have a dehydrated. Looks like a good reason to get one though :)

  3. Looks good and healthy, but I still prefer eating the peach raw or as part of a cake! I am going to try the peach leather recipe sometime when I get the essential equipment and ingredients! Nice and yummy article, made me hungry for some peach.
