Sweet peach candy fruit rolls – only one ingredient!

Peaches … yep that’s it!!

The secret is to roast the peaches to release their natural sugars before dehydrating them.  Here is how to do it:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.  
  2. Slice peaches in half and remove pit.  Place peach halves pit side up in a glass baking dish.  Bake for 15min.  
  3. Switch the oven to broil.  Move the peaches under the broiler to roast for another 10 min (monitor peaches so they don’t burn – just looking for a light browning.)
  4. Carefully remove the roasted peaches from the oven and let rest for 10 min.  (The pit cavity might fill with peach juices 
  5. Puree the peaches in a food processor or blender until smooth.  
  6. Spread the puree onto a dehydrator tray that has the fruit leather liner (smaller holes so the puree will not fall through).  use an offset spatula or the back of a spoon to smooth out the puree into an even layer (about 1/4 inch in thickness). 
  7. Set the dehydrator to 140°F and allow the fruit to dry for 8 to 10 hours.
  8. Peel the fruit leather off of the tray and slice long strips with a pizza cutter.
  9. Roll strips and place in an airtight container for storage.
