I’m going to share with you my recipe for Strawberry flavored Rhubarb and Red Pear fruit leather. This is a hit with patients who are looking for something different and even a little healthy to eat as a medible. Because this recipe contains rhubarb as one of the main ingredients I have added some additional sugar to counteract the tartness found in the rhubarb. Don’t worry though, if you want to convert this you can easily substitute any fruit in the amounts listed in the recipe. If you use a sweet fruit in season you may leave the sugar out entirely or you can reduce it to taste. You may also substitute any desired sweetener for your dietary needs. While fruit leather may sound daunting or complicated it’s actually quite simple to make. Let’s get started!
** Variations for other fruits: Simply substitute the fresh chopped fruit of your choice. You can certainly use blends of fruit as well, just be sure that you have a total of 4 Cups of fresh chopped fruit. Reduce the amount of sugar to taste and then follow the same instructions above. Feel free to use an alternative sweetener such as maple syrup for this recipe. Also if you don’t want an artificial color/flavor you can make this without the kool-aid. I mainly use the kool-aid flavoring when working with rhubarb because it mellows the sour/tart rhubarb flavor a bit. When making with berries and other fruit I just allow the flavor of the fruit to shine through and eliminate the kool-aid from the recipe.
**Do not substitute wax paper for parchment paper. The wax paper will absorb some moisture and become almost impossible to remove easily from the finished leather
**Alternative to cutting into rectangles you could use a cookie cutter to cut out fun shapes or you could cut out a long strip and roll it up to make a fruit roll-up
