I recently had the opportunity to pick some ripe plums from a friend’s tree.  Lucky me!

What to do?  What to do?

Eric said I should make some jam…

Then, I remembered my dehydrator.  I’ve never made fruit leather!

It’s so easy!  I just pureed the pitted plums with a couple bananas and poured the “smoothie” onto the ParaFlexx dehydrator sheets:

After about 6 hours dehydrating at 135 degrees, I had my own tangy fruit leather.  How fun!

This is a great snack to take with us mountain biking. 🙂

Remember this, folks– the only acceptable “leather” is plant-based!
