    What's better than a fresh, ripe peach? Okay, not much. But you can preserve that flavor even longer by dehydrating the fruit with a little honey, for a portable version of your favorite fruit (and no dripping!).

    That "superfood" blueberry takes a spin in the oven in this version of fruit leather. Blueberries are high in antioxidants, and contain other nutrients too, so you can feel very good about tossing these in your kids' lunchboxes or serving them as an after school snack!

    Yes, even cold weather produce can be used to make easy homemade fruit leather — like this apple-pumpkin version. You can either make your own applesauce and pumpkin puree, or use the jarred and canned varieties with equally delicious results!

  • Strawberry Fruit Leather 7 of 11

    Were you "overly enthusiastic" at the farmers market? Did you get those early spring strawberries a little too early? Fruit leather is the answer. If you find yourself with an excess of produce, put your oven (or dehydrator) to work. Dehydrating — like roasting — also brings out the natural sweetness of less-than-perfect fruit, so if your bounty was not quite ready, make some fruit leather instead!
