Last summer I canned applesauce, and peaches in apple juice, and made cases of juice sweetened jam. In winter, I blender up fruit leather. It needs to be mostly applesauce, because that makes good stretchy, rollable leather.  This batch has one with apricots, two with peaches, one with strawberry jam, one with cinnamon spiced apples, and one with blackberry juice. I will put these in the dehydrator overnight, and then I rip them into fourths, put them on sheets of waxed paper, and roll them up with a paper twist at either end like a big tootsie roll. They go in a canister and the kids pack them for lunches.
