What is fruit leather? What makes mine different?

Fruit leather is fruit that has been pureed and dehydrated, optionally with some sugar. According to the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the low temperatures used in making fruit leather (135 degrees F) preserve antioxidants better than canned jellies and jams. They say fruit leather will last 4 to 12 months at room temperature, and over a year in the refrigerator.

Mine is made from all local, chemical free produce grown in Rice, Goodhue, or Dakota county. The wild fruits were foraged by me in Rice and Goodhue counties. I mix in maple syrup or honey to help the leather keep longer, and make it tastier.

They are $5 each or mix and match 5 for $20. The wild fruit leathers are half the size of the regular, because they are small and arduous to forage. But the taste is exceptional!
