Homemade Fruit By the Foot
Kroger had strawberries 4 for $5 so we took up that deal and with some rhubarb from Mom and Dad Pitstick's garden we set out to make fruit leather. We made them slightly too thin and dehydrated just a little too long. But it should be pretty easy to fix for the next round.
All we did was puree the strawberries and rhubarb, added about a tablespoon of honey. For a little energy boost we added 2 tablespoons of chia seeds. We put plastic wrap on the dehydrator sheets and then spread the puree mixture on those (do not do it too thin as it will get thinner as it dehydrates). We put it in the dehydrator for 8 hours but will probably do about 6-7 the next round.
