Polka Dot Fruit Roll Ups

Cindy Rowland knows that snacks are a key part of feeding little ones. Her blog, Fix Me A Snack offers ideas for fresh, yummy, homemade foods that have nothing to do with the highly-processed, nutritionally empty snacks that are marketed to kids. She uses a food dehydrator to turn pureed fruit sauces (apple, blackberry, and peach) into adorable Polka Dot Fruit Roll Ups with that chewy texture kids love.

      Spread the applesauce out onto a lightly greased dyhydrator tray to 1/4-inch thickness.  A large offset spatula works well, but if you don't have one spread the applesauce evenly as best you can with the back of a spoon. "Decorate" the applesauce with the peach and blacknberry sauces using separate squeeze bottles.

      Place the prepared tray in the dehydrator and set the machine to 135°F. Run the dyhydrator for 4 hours or more until the fruit leather is no longer tacky and completely dry.  The amount of time necessary depends on the thickness and amount of sugar in the fruit.

      Remove the fruit leather from the tray and cut into 2-inch wide strips. Store rolled up in wax paper in an airtight container.  Should keep for weeks if not months.
