Fruit Roll-Ups You Can Make At Home!

Thanks Laura for the recipe! Laura says "This is soooo easy and yummy too....great for kids! A new favorite!"

3 cups of fruit (ie strawberries, apples, peaches, pears, nectarines, blueberries, etc)
1/8 to 1/4 cup of fruit juice
Peel, core and slice fruit. Place in a blender with juice and blend until smooth, then place in a saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes. Let cool and place plastic wrap* over a baking sheet. Pour the puree onto the wrap, keeping away from the edges. Spread as thin as possible with a spatula. Turn oven on lowest possible heat, or even just the pilot light. You basically want it to be warm in there, not hot. Leave baking sheet in oven for 6-8 hours  (don't worry, the plastic wrap doesn't melt). Remove from oven and roll up the dried fruit and plastic wrap like a jelly roll. To serve, cut the roll into 1-inch sections and peel off the wrap.
*you could also use wax paper
