Grape Fruit Leathers
6 cups fresh Chilean grapes
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
¼ – ½ cup sugar
Preheat oven to lowest setting – 150-175 Fahrenheit.
Wash and de-stem fresh grapes. Blend grapes in a blender then transfer puree to a medium saucepan. Stir in fresh lemon juice and ¼ cup sugar. Warm mixture over medium heat and whisk until sugar has dissolved. Taste, and add more sugar as desired, depending on the natural sweetness of the fruit.
Pour puree in an even layer onto a 11x17inch baking sheet lined with a parchment paper.
Place baking sheet in the warm oven for 6-8 hours, or until grape puree is no longer wet to the touch. Let cool and the leathery texture will emerge.
Cut fruit leather in half lengthwise, (while it’s still on the parchment paper), then cut into 1-inch-wide strips. Roll the fruit leather and store in an airtight container.
