Peach Vanilla Fruit Leather

I almost feel bad posting a recipe for fruit leather.  There are so many places where you can find the process written out step by step and then with that knowledge you can blend any fruits you want and make whatever flavors you can possibly think of it.  You can add spices and extracts and you can even steep tea bags in your fruit purees.  You can add sugar if you want, or you can add some sweeter fruit(like I did with the banana in this recipe) or you can even add 100% fruit juice to sweeten it.  It is an endless world of possibilities and yet commercial fruit leather companies hardly have any fruit even in their product!  They look good, but I’d much rather have one of these.

Now I’m not sure how this recipe will fit into baking sheets.  I have read that an 18″ x 14″ pan will need about 2 1/2 cups of puree but I haven’t tested this myself.  If that’s true this recipe should make about 2 full baking sheets.  If you try that method let me know.  I do have more fruit leather recipes to post so I will test that out before I post more.  If you don’t like bananas in baked goods you might want to sub something else for the banana in this recipe or just leave it out.  Taste for sweetness before spreading out to dry though.  My husband loves fresh bananas but can’t stand them in baked goods and he immediately asked if I added banana to this fruit leather.  Oops..

That sounds great. I’ve packed a few of these in my bag in a ziploc and then found them a couple weeks later(does that sound totally gross? Sorry! Lol) and they’re just as good so they definitely travel well.
