Peach Fruit Leathers

We got a bunch of peaches in our co-op basket this week.  I though about doing some ice cream or cobbler, but at the last minute I decided to make peach fruit leathers.

Fruit leathers are really easy to make.  Much cheaper too!  I used my dehydrator to make these peach fruit leathers, but you can make them in your oven as well.  I just love the dehydrator because it quietly runs and I can even leave the house with it on.  It also doesn’t heat up the kitchen.  This is so easy, it’s almost silly to call it a recipe.

Peach Fruit Leathers

Ingredients

  • 5 peaches
  • 1 T honey or maple syrup (optional)

Instructions

  • If using an oven, preheat it to 150. 
  • Cut and pit all the peaches. I left the skins on, but you can also remove them if you want.
  • In a food processor or blender, mix the peaches into a smooth puree.  Take a taste. 
  • If the mixture is on the tart side, add a small amount of sweetener. 
  • If you are using the oven, spread the mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  Make sure it’s as even as it can get. 
  • Bake for about 7 hours or until the mixture is a bit tacky.  I kept checking on mine to see how easily it could pull away from the parchment. 
  • I also line my dehydrator trays with parchment. 
  • Set the dehydrator on 150 and run for about 7 hours.

I got about 10 fruit rolls out of my batch. I really wish I had made more. Feel free to double the batch! Enjoy!

  1. I’ve tried two batches now, and lined cookie sheets with parchment paper each time. The first batch stuck to the parchment to the extent there was no possible way to peel the fruit from the paper. With the second batch, I lightly sprayed the parchment paper with non-stick cooking spray; this stuck, too. Please help!

  2. Hi, this recipe looks great! I can’t wait to try it out! I was wondering if I could use it on a blog post I am writing about healthy peanut-free snacks. I would only be using a photo and will link back to this post for the recipe.
    Thanks!

  3. i have what is probably a really dumb question…….i have everything needed for this but i have never used parchment paper before in my life. Can i do several layers in my dehydrator?? Will the parchment paper allow the drying process “through” the paper or only do 1 layer at a time?? Thanking you in advance!!!!

    1. I have a dehydrator and I always use parchment paper in it. You can definitely do this in several trays on the dehydrator.
