Mango Fruit Roll-Ups

Wow, does anyone else have a huge influx of fruit right now? Somehow, I found myself with quite a few mangos that were ripening pretty quickly and had to use them up. So of course, I made fruit roll-ups.

Weren't these the best treat as a kid? Sometimes my mom would make fruit leather, usually apricot. She never bought ones from the store, probably because they are too expensive. And I mean, have you seen the ingredients in those things? I love the taste of them, but whenever I read the ingredients I just imagine someone with a bio-hazard suit tossing chemicals together and a machine spitting out a bright red/blue/yellow "fruit" roll-up.

No worries with these. 100% fruit. I feel like mango is a really good fruit for leather because they are intensely sweet and don't need any additional ingredients. They dry to the perfect consistency.

Make sure you've got some really ripe mangos for this. A little on the squishy side. Tutorial from here.

First, cut up two mangos and remove the flesh. Add to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.

Spread evenly on a parchment-lined 11x17" baking sheet and bake at 175º for 3-4 hours. Check often after about 2 1/2 hours. It'll be done when it is no longer sticky in the middle.

Cut into strips with kitchen shears or a pizza cutter. Store tightly in plastic for up to a month at room temperature or in the freezer for up to a year.

Yum!

  6. The little blossoms of it are borne on the inward surface of a plump, empty organ called 'repository' and the natural product is the consequence of the further development of this container. Many developed business fig varieties don't deliver rich blooms for which purpose behind their preparation dust of wild figs are utilized. rare exotic fruits
