Fruit Leather, Second Try

I made a batch of apple leather a few weeks ago. It was tasty.

However, I have no more apples to make it with, so I decided to try making it with store-bought applesauce.

Disappointing. Very sweet, not as much apple flavor.

Looks like I'll keep doing it the hard way.

Interesting, I've never heard of apple leather...

NFO - it can really be done with most any fruit, or apple can easily be flavored/blended with something else. Pears, apricots, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, whatever floats your boat. Around here apples are plentiful, and this time of year stores are starting to get rid of what was in cold storage for the winter. Flavor is still fine, but texture has gotten mealy - so they make great saucing/juicing/leathering apples.
