Need a health snack? Have a few hours and some garden-fresh berries to use up? Fruit leather is healthy, easy, and stores well. And the possibilities are endless...any fruit will do. Try a rainbow version, mixing multi-colored fruit purées in stripes. The recipe below is just a blueprint.

Easy Fruit Leather
1 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cup berries of your choice
Preheat oven to 170 degrees and line a baking sheet with a non-stick baking pad or parchment paper.
Combine the applesauce and the berries in a blender and purée until a smooth mix forms.
Spread the mixture over the prepared baking dish, using a spatula to create an evenly flat surface to the edges of the pan.
Bake for about 3-4 hours. The leather should be slightly sticky, but not soft anymore.
Remove and slice into strips and store in an airtight container for snacking!
