A good way to use up excess fruit is by drying fruit leather. This page contains fruit leather recipes.
I am looking for some good recipes for making fruit leather. Any tips or recipes would be greatly appreciated. I have never done it before.

This isn't the leather but oh so easy and my kids LOVE it. Take a big can of fruit cocktail drain and stick in the dehydrator. Turn on low heat. Before going to bed I turn over. In the A.M. is usually ready (if the kids didn't already eat it all:)
Has anybody tried making fig fruit leather?

Thanks, I went ahead and made some but I just stemmed, washed and pureed the figs. I rolled the leather in wax paper and cut into 2" pieces for snacking and vacuum sealed in mason jars.
Why would you need to peel them?
