How To Make Fruit Roll-Up

Good Morning :)

I bet @plantstoplanks will love this article today as I will be sharing a recipe using pumpkin, and she just loooooveeesss pumpkins and gourds much :D

I made fruit leather yesterday, so, so, so good, I kid you not.

And for today's flavor, am sharing the one with pumpkin. I made quite a few, with apples and berries too, but yeah, pumpkin it is for now :)

Sounds weird, fruit roll-up, yet using pumpkin, when pumpkin is more to vegetable, right? Well, think of pumpkin PIE.

Yep, these leathers are flavored with pumpkin pie spice :D

My husband and my oldest really like these pumpkin leather and I packed a couple rolls to my oldest's lunch box this morning, which he was so excited to show his friends lol

Here is the recipe, should you like to try :)

  • 2 c frozen steamed pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/8 tsp each of ginger powder, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder
  • a generous pinch of freshly grind cloves
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp sugar

  • Defrost frozen pumpkin puree on stove, over medium high heat
  • Cook until moisture and water evaporated, and puree is thick
  • Once puree is thick, stir in 2 tbsp water and the rest of the ingredients, cook on high for 1 minute
  • Spread mixture thinly, on parchment lined rectangular pan

  • Bake on preheated 170 F for 8 H . Yep, you read right, 8 H to achieve that dry but pliable leather texture, but this is depending on your oven.
  • Let cool slightly, then cut into strips

  • Enjoy, roll, stored in container or ziplock and yummo :D

I will share you the recipe for the apples and berries some other time, but basically they are similar measurements and method :)

Thanks for looking and see you around <3

Do you have trouble with this? I do not think I have seen it more than a handful of times in 2 years. Maybe because you are a witness?

·

I havent seen any for months. I have had this warning since forever though, even before i was a witness.

I have never tried it but I've heard so much about it. There is a girl in Slovakia who made a booming business out of these fruits rolls. When you pack them nicely you can make a beautiful birthday present too.

It sounds like a healthy way to satisfy that sweet tooth :) I think I will finally try it. There is still plenty of pumpkin here so this should not be a problem :)

Have a lovely day!

Hi there, apa kabar?

Yes i do bump home businesses who do edible bouquet of sweets, fruits, cheese from time to time, and they have fruit roll ups on their bouquets. There are some on Instagram too, mostly Russians.

This is one recipe I have never tried before; and if my kids all still were young and at home, I'd be making some.

Perhaps I'll attempt it for the grandkids!!

·

Yeeessss, come on grandma, make some for the grandbabies ❤

We have Candy that is roller up this way here in Holland

·

Yeah, i bet. I saw some in Germany and Hungary too, in other words, pretty common everywhere ❤

·
·

And i love the we call it STROOP with the aetable paper.
Its grandmas Candy thats how long they exist

·
·
·

Nice that the paper is edible there, wish they would use edible paper here as well

I only use edible paper for cake decorating 😁

·

Let me know if you want me to send you Some

Brilliant answer. :P

I did not understand, and what to do with the paper? Or is the pumpkin easily removed from it?

·

You peel it, yes 😊

Have you tried store bought fruit roll up before? The paper helps so that the candy wont stick to itself.

You dont have to roll it with the paper, esp once it's dried and serve the candy right away, btw 😊

How are you btw? Did you win the art contest?

Genius!! Sounds like a delicious way to eat your veggies, haha! We're working on getting my niece to try more things, so I'm going to have to remember to try this for her. I remember eating the sticky, sugary processed ones from the store as a kids but this sounds soooo much better!

cool, thanks!

That's so cool. I'd rather do it without sugar though - I wonder if it'd work with maple syrup? They look very pretty as well. I bet they taste amazing!

·

yes! you can use honey, if you are not vegan that is, or maple syrup, or even leave it out (like for berries and or ripe banana, I do not really add sweetener)

This sounds like a good way to use the frozen sweet potato that I have had in storage for almost a year now. I might just be motivated enough to go do that right now. Bye!!

LOVE pumpkin! And this is a cool way to keep the kids interested.

I've tried strawberry leather before and even though it is so yummy, it takes so much of it to make. The pumpkin sounds good for that reason because you can get so much out of one.
I would have to use raspberry and blueberry rather than strawberry as I can go picking for it. The strawberries don't grow here so much so we have to buy it and it is quite expensive.

·

Foxy dont laugh at me buuuttt I love Walmart $1 rack 😂

Most of the times the fruits are still perfect. Thats when i stock up like bags and bags and freeze them, then use them for goodies 😁 beacuse yeah otherwise, too expensive to make as it requires cups and cups of puree

·
·

I would never laugh! It's using the good food at a better price and it doesn't go to waste.

If I would see them I would definitely grab as much as possible.

Turnips, pumpkin and squash are not my favourite foods, but I would certainly give it a try

Why oh why do I read food posts mid morning... they look very "nibbly", like you can't just have one mmm :)

·

ooh "no peeking", Nick!, says Rebecca :P

Haha! That cheeky young trouble maker @rebeccabe 😁

omg that looks so gooooooooooooooooood * __ *

and the recipe and photos make it look even more more more delicious omg i wants these in my mouth right now so bad XD amazing post, @thekitchenfairy !!!!

·

ta lovely <3

You really really love pumpkin eh?
You have said it before but didn’t realise how much 😉

·

i do love them, but also because you know, we always go crazy for giant pumpkins in October, then after Halloween party, all would be gone to the freezer, so gotta use them all year round ;-)

This is an interesting recipe. I've got to try it one day.

yeeesss, give this a try, yummo!

Great idea @thekitchenfairy

Healthy and still cool for kids.

Gaz

·

healthier indeed, but i would say without additional sugar/sweetener would be healthy :D

·
·

True 😁

Great recipe .. yummy
#powerhousecreatives :) you are one of the best :)

·

why, thank you <3

I don't think my stove has been on a total of 8 hours in ten years. 🤣 I might have to change that to try this recipe. 👍

·

if you use regular oven stove, 5-6 would work, depending on the fruits tho

i used tabletop oven, it took me 8 h for the pumpkin, 6.5 for other fruits :)

Never tried this recipe before. Sounds hard to do but I will give it a try 😉

seriously easy, seriously.

it's just like dried fruits, yet thinner, soft, and nice

Oh how I love dried fruit rolled up like this, we get these where I live in Apricot, Guava and a few others @thekitchenfairy.

Never seen it made with pumpkin actually never knew how to make it, thanks for sharing.

·

oooh if only guava is common here in Canada (up north Canada in fact, where we are far from any civilization hahha), love guava!

yes, am weird, not that am crazy on pumpkin, love them, but not crazy crazy, however we always get at least 8-10 giant ones for Halloween, which in the end, the freezer would be filled with the puree, for all year round hahah

·
·

Guava rolls are really my favourite, I see they are sold on Amazon if ever you wish to taste (it is expensive), Safari Fruit Rolls Guava 80gram (3 Pack).

Pumpkin being available sounds interesting to say the least.

Mmmm. My mom makes fruit leather. It's such a great snack. Perfect to take on a hike. I don't think I've seen her make pumpkin ones though. It sounds tasty! I'll have to mention it to her. lol.

·

one would think, aaah pumpkin, how original...not so much once I Googled hahahha tons of people already beat me to it!

looks so yummy! I would much rather make my own than buy the shop made versions.

Thanks to @goldendawne for recommending this post in the #powerhousecreatives discord x

Great recipe @thekitchenfairy. This one by far has had the least amount of sugar used. I'm not a huge pumpkin fan, but I never thought about steaming the pumpkin. I usually bake it then puree it.

That looks lovely! Pumkins and squashes are brilliant because, if they are stored properly, they can keep for ages!

8 hours! I had no idea that it cooked for that long! I love pumpkin and I bet this is delicious!

Oh, that sounds wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing!

I have heard so much about fruit leather. We (not me... 😉) make something similar in South Africa. Usually with dried peaches or apricots. It's known a mebos
