Red Grape Fruit Leathers

If you've been following Meats + Sweets you've probably noticed I like my fruit leathers.  I've always had a sweet tooth and fruit roll ups, fruit leather, gummies and fruit by the foot are all favorites I still crave.  I like making them at home as it allows me to adjust the amount of added sugar, which in most cases, is zero.  I find that if ripe fruit is used then no extra sweetener is needed.  

I haven't tried it but I think green grapes would be a tasty substitute.  

Red Grape Fruit Leathers

20 oz organic seedless red grapes, stems discarded

Heat oven to 170 degrees.  Wash and dry grapes.  Blend until a smooth puree has formed.  Spread evenly over a silpat or parchment paper lined half sheet tray.  I like to use a large offset spatula, making sure the center is not thicker than the edges.  Place in oven and bake until surface is no longer sticky but fruit leather hasn't become brittle.  This will take about 4 hours.  

Remove from oven and cool.  Peel away from liner and cut into strips.  Store in an airtight container.
