Fruit Leather with the Roma™ Electric Tomato Strainer and Weston® Dehydrator

We're so excited about our new Electric Tomato Strainer, we just keep on coming up with excuses to use it!

One of the best features of the strainer is the berry screen, which strains out stems and seeds from the fruit puree while processing... which just so happens to make the perfect puree for fruit leather.

With a Roma™ by Weston® Electric Tomato Strainer and a Weston® Dehydrator, making homemade fruit leather can be done in two simple steps:

1. PROCESS: Load the fruit and other ingredients into the hopper of the strainer, turn the machine on, and collect the puree.

2. DEHYDRATE: Pour the puree (about 1/8" thick in the center and 1/4" thick at the edges) onto parchment paper-lined dehydrator trays and dehydrate for 6-8 hours at 135 degrees F.

Once the leather has dried and cooled, you can cut it to the size you want right on the parchment paper, cover it with plastic wrap, and roll it up.
