If you have a high power blender like a Vitamix, don’t bother peeling the apples. You’ll get the extra fiber, and the color from the peels is so pretty. This is a great guilt-free snack to take on a hike, and perfect for your kiddos. Enjoy!
Apple Spice Fruit Leather
Yield: About 24 pieces
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 8-12 hours
- 8 cups chopped apples (if you have a high-powered blender, just leave them unpeeled)
- 1 cup spiced apple cider
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Large pot
- Silicone baking mat or microwave-safe plastic wrap
- Approx 12×17 inch baking sheet
- Cutting board
- Kitchen shears, knife, or pizza cutter
- Blender or immersion blender
Preheat the oven to 170° F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or microwave-safe plastic wrap.
Combine the apples, apple cider, and cinnamon in a large pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer until the apples are soft.
Puree the mixture in a blender and pour onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently shake the baking sheet to spread out the fruit puree.
Bake until the fruit is mostly dried out, but still a little sticky.
Cool completely and then cut into strips. Store in a tightly sealed container.
