We strive to eat foods that are healthy and have natural ingredients. This recipe is for homemade fruit rollups. They are dye free, chemical free, and contain only 3 ingredients: apples, cinnamon (optional), and honey for pliability. We recommend using Aunt Bea’s Honey! My kids actually prefer these to their store bought counterparts. You do have to have a few different pieces of equipment to make these including a dehydrator with paraffin sheets and a good blender. Parchment paper can be used instead of paraffin sheets, but it’s a little tricky to use. The paper likes to curl up and the rollups are more difficult to remove. I have a 9 tray dehydrator and I used 18 apples.
Step One: Wash and cut up your apples.
Step Two: Blend the apples until there are no large pieces.
Step Three: To each blenderfull, add a few tablespoons of honey and cinnamon to taste.
Step Four: Place your paraffin sheets on the dehydrator trays.
Step Five: Spread about 1/2 cup onto each sheet. Try to spread as evenly as possible. Sometimes I gently bang the tray on the top of the table a few times to help get the mixture even.
Step Six: Load the trays into your dehydrator and set the timer according to your dehydrator guide.
Step Seven: Peel the dried fruit from the paraffin sheets and roll!
Step Eight: Cut the fruit roll ups to the desired length for snacks and lunches.
Step Nine: ENJOY!
