Ingredients
1/2 c. sugar
Fruit of your choice – apples, peaches, apricots, strawberries, etc.

Methods/steps
Remove seeds and stems from fruit; chop and then cook pulp. Place about 1 cup of pulp in blender at a time and puree. Combine pulp and sugar. Cover a cookie sheet with Saran Wrap and secure with tape. Spread mixture onto plastic wrap in a very thin layer, about 1/8" or less. Place in oven at 150 degrees, with door ajar, for about 2 hours or until leather is no longer sticky. Remove from oven and roll up into a log and cut into individual rolls.
