Strawberry Fruit Leather

Fizzy’s Tips: Nonstick liners, such as silpat mats, are sold in the baking section of most kitchen stores. A smoothed sheet of nonstick aluminum foil may be used in place of a silpat mat.


Yield: 6 servings


  • 1 (16 ounce) bag frozen strawberries defrosted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch kosher salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a nonstick liner. Puree the strawberries, sugar and salt in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring often, about 20 minutes.
  2. Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread so that the edges are slightly thicker than the center. Bake until the puree is dry but still slightly tacky, 2 to 3 hours. Remove the fruit leather, still attached to the liner, to a wire cooling rack, and cool for 3 hours. Cut the leather into 6 by 2-inch strips and store in an airtight container. Can be stored at room temperature for 1 month.
