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!

I always feel a little guilty about “wasting food” when I throw out the pulp after I juice.   To use some of my carrot-celery-cucumber-parsley-apple-lemon pulp, I decided to create some raw crackers using my Excalibur Dehydrator.

LEMON PEPPER GARDEN VEGGIE FLAX CRACKERS:

Soak 1 cup flax seeds in 1 1/4 cup water for about an hour…


Add the flax seeds (with absorbed water) to a large food processor with 2 cups juicer pulp…


Process with 1/2 t onion powder, 1 t lemon pepper, 1/2 t sea salt, 1 t nutritional yeast, and 1/2 t garlic powder…


Divide the mixture in half and spread thinly on 2 dehydrator trays over the ParaFlexx Non Stick Dehydrator Sheets (or parchment)…



Dehydrate at 115 degrees for about 8 hours, until completely dry.  After 3 hours, flip the partially dehydrated cracker sheets over and score them (if desired) into the size and shape pieces you want.  Break apart when they’re done.  Raw crackers store well in the freezer.

Here are some other raw crackers I’ve made…

SALSA-FLAX CRACKERS from “Becoming Raw” by Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina…


SUNNY RYE CRACKERS from “Becoming Raw”…


Sunny Rye Crackers taste good with a dab of mustard and a dollop of lemon dill sauerkraut…


Making your own raw crackers is easier than you might think – Happy Crackering!
