Apricot Roll Ups - Fruit Leathers - @Thermo.Cazza

  • 1000 g Apricots, halved
  • 50 g white sugar
  • 30 g lemon juice, fresh lemon juice

Recipe's preparation

    Make the Apricot Puree Mix
  1. This recipe is based on organic home-grown Apricots. Ripe fruit can be used but will make the roll-ups sweeter. I normally pick my fruit just before fully ripening.
  2. Thoroughly wash your Apricots. Remove the stone and discard.
    Halve or quarter your apricots.
  3. Place 1 kg of prepared apricots into the mixing bowl.
    Weigh-in 50g of sugar and 30g of freshly squeezed lemon juice to the apricots.
  4. Place lid on with the Measuring Cup in place.
    Blitz the fruit for 60 seconds / Speed 8.5 - or until a fine mixture is achieved.
    Remove any puree from underneath the lid and incorporate it back into the bowl.
  5. Replace the MC with the Varoma dish (without the lid).
    Cook for 30 min /110 degrees / Speed 2.5

    After cooking there should be around 850ml of puree ready for dehydration.
  6. Lightly grease approximately 4 trays (with lipped sides - approx. 23 cm x 33 cm) with olive oil spray...then place a sheet of Glad Bake down on each tray. Do not overextend the baking paper.

    If you have a dehydrator with special trays for liquids - you will still need to grease those trays.

    Evenly distribute the puree over the 4 trays (approx 2mm high). Carefully tap the sides of the tray to move the puree to all corners of the tray.
  7. Dehydrate in the Oven.
    Set oven to Fan Forced, 50 - 55 degrees celcius....and no more than 60 degrees.
    You will need to space out the trays evenly in your oven so that the air circulates properly.
    Allow anywhere between 12 - 17 hours for complete dehydration and sometimes longer. If there is a 'wet' spot on top of the roll-up then it needs more time in the oven. If you peel one roll-up back and find it is leaving residue on the paper, it too needs more time dehydrating. It's a slow and steady race! Do not be tempted to increase the oven temperature!
  8. Once dehydration is complete allow the roll-ups to cool down before rolling up with or without the paper and store in an air-tight container in the fridge. It will keep for several months. Remove the paper before consuming. Roll-up and cut into your preferred serving size.

- Sugar Substitutions - Monk Fruit Sweetener is acceptable. Adjust to taste preference.
- Making this recipe without sugar will produce a 'tougher' roll-up and more difficult to chew.
- Increasing sugar content will make this a 'stickier' roll-up.
- If you don't want to use baking paper, pour the mixture onto the Thermomix Silicone mats - ensure they are flat.

    BecStar2019: Hi BecStar, that's a great question. I can't tell you exactly because I only ever use my own homegrown fruit. But if your fruit is ripe you could drop the sugar to 40g. At the end of the day, there is not much spread throughout the mixture. It is there to act as a preservative - so it can last longer in your fridge. Try it both ways and see what you think. I think if you kept the recipe as is, it might be the right balance - especially if you are serving this up to young ones, who may find it sour to start with.

    If using ripe, store purchased apricots, how much would you reduce the sugar?
