Equipment

  • dehydrator, a rear mounting fan is best
  • Stock Pot
  • food processor or blender
  • parchment paper or silicone non-stick mats
  • 1/2 Gallon Mason Jar
  • silicon spatula
  • EQUIPMENT FOR OVEN DRYING
  • 2 baking sheets
  • 2 silicone baking mats

Ingredients

  • 4 cups peaches cut into 1-inch wedge fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup honey or sugar

Instructions

Dehydrator Method

  • Wash peaches well.
  • Using a knife separate the flesh of peach from the pit by cutting 1-inch wedges.
  • In a non-reactive pot add all ingredients, bring to a boil making sure to stir often. Continue to boil until the peach wedges have fully cooked and are soft to the touch.
  • Transfer the cooked peach mixture to a blender or food processor.
  • Place parchment paper or silicone sheets onto the dehydrator trays. Spread the peach mixture evenly onto the sheets.
  • Verify the drying time based on the manual for your dehydrator. For those using an Excalibur dehydrate, set the temperature to 125 degrees Fahrenheit. The drying process will take 8 to 12 hours or until the mixture takes on a leathery texture. The thicker the peach mixture, the longer it will take to dry.
  • Once completely dried remove the peach fruit leather from dehydrator trays. Using scissors and ruler (for straight cuts), cut the homemade peach fruit leather into strips. Roll the strips and tie off to secure the rolls.
  • Store the rolls in an airtight container such as a 1/2 gallon mason jar. An oxygen absorber can be added to minimize the moisture within the container. Or store the homemade peach fruit leather in the refrigerator.

Oven Method

  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place silicone baking onto baking trays, set aside.
  • Prepare peach fruit leather as indicated in the dehydrating method.
  • Divide the fruit leather onto the two baking trays. Place into the oven to bake for 5 hours. Throughout the baking period rotate trays often to ensure the leather dries evenly. The mixture is complete once it has fused into one piece and is tacky to the touch.
  • Follow the steps for packing found in the dehydrating method.
