Peach Fruit Leather

This homemade Peach Fruit Leather recipe is a a healthy fruit snack reminiscent of the store-bought version, but so much more delicious and good-for-you. It’s made with only 2 ingredients and is a lot easier-t0-make than you think. It’s made without any refined sugars and will be loved by both adults and kids! This post is made in partnership with my friends at Ello.

Peach fruit leatherPeach Fruit Leather Recipe

This homemade peach fruit leather is a copy cat version of a fruit rollup, but SO MUCH BETTER. And, despite how complicated you think it is to make fruit leather at home, it’s actually so simple! It only takes 2 ingredients to make: fresh peach and a touch of honey. And actually, if your peaches are really sweet you can skip out on the honey if you want. To dehydrate the fruit leather you use the oven. Which means no fancy equipment is needed!

So how do you make it? Basically you just puree peaches and dry them out in the oven. It’s almost all hands-off cooking. The hardest part about making this fruit leather is that you’ll have to plan a time to be home for about 6 and 8 hours to let it dry out. You’ll also need to make sure your oven temperature can go as low as 170ºF. 

How to take the skin off peachesHow to Peel Peaches Easily

To make the peach leather you will first prepare the peaches. Make sure the peaches have no signs of mold and actually taste good. You’ll want to use ripe but firm peaches. If they are not ripe the skin will not peel off easily. Next you’ll need to take off the skin. To do this:

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil. Score the bottom skin of the peaches with an “X”.
  2. Place peaces in boiling water for 30 seconds. You should start to see the skin curl back.
  3. Remove peaches and immediately place in an ice bath. 
  4. At this point the skin should easily rub off of the peach. Use a towel to help you hold on to the peach because it can be slippery.

How Long Does it Take to Dehydrate the Leather?

The fruit leather will take about 6-8 hours to dry at an oven temperature of 170º. If it goes even lower you can dry it out over a longer period of time. You’ll know it’s dry because the fruit leather changes colors and becomes darker when all of the moisture has evaporated. If you still aren’t sure whether it is done, you can lightly touch the peach mixture to see if it’s dry. If it’s still a bit wet let it go for an hour more at a time. It should take no longer than 8 hours.

Once it’s done cooking, let it sit at room temperate to cool completely and soften up. We like to let it sit for about 3-6 hours.

Next you’ll place the whole mixture on a piece of parchment paper, roll it up and cut it into serving sizes. Store in an airtight container for a few days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

I love to store everything, including this Peach Fruit Leather in my Ello DuraGlass Food Storage Containers. These containers are perfect for both on the go and at home use. I use glass containers for many reasons, including the obvious: plastics are bad for the environment and can contain harmful chemicals when coming in to contact with food.

These glass containers are awesome because they are free of harmful chemicals, they can be heated in the oven, are dishwasher safe and they don’t stain or have a funny smell. But what makes Ello Food Storage Containers different is the protective silicone sleeve. It prevents the glass from breaking or chipping, as can happen often if you are using glass containers regularly. Plus, you don’t have to take the silicone sleeve off to wash it.

Colored glass jars for storage

And my favorite part about these containers? I love the silicone covers because they grip well (perfect for stacking) and they are colored so I don’t loose my lids!

  • Mighty tough: Silicone sleeve protects glass from chips + scratches.
  • Everything tastes better in glass: Won’t stain or smell.
  • Nobody likes a lunch bag leak:  The clear air tight lids won’t leak.
  • Easy-to-pair color match lids: Because life’s already hard enough.
  • Wash away: All parts top rack dishwasher safe, sleeve and all. No need to remove sleeve for oven + cleaning!
  • Comes in all different sizes: For sides, mains, leftovers, and more!
  • Safe for cooking: Freezer safe, microwave safe without lid, and oven safe up to 450F without lid.
  • Free of: BPA, phthalates, PVC, lead and cadmium free.
  • Where I get mine: Available at Target and Amazon!

fruit leather on baking sheetTips for Successfully Making this Peach Fruit Leather

  1. Use the correct size sheet pan. When we say sheet pan we are referring to the rimmed half sheet pan which is 18″ by 13″. The size of the sheet pan matters because you want to make sure this is spread to the correct consistency.
  2. Take care to spread the mixture evenly. If it is too thick in the middle and thin on the edges, the edges will burn before the middle has cooked through.
  3. The fruit leather will change color when it’s dehydrated enough. Instead of sticking your finger in the mixture prematurely and causing a hole in it (we may have done this a few times) look to check on the color of the fruit leather first. If it has darkened in color throughout, it is likely done and then you can double check by touching it to see if it’s dry. If the middle is a slightly lighter peach color than you can assume it’s still uncooked in the middle and you should place it back in the oven to continue to dry.

Prep Time 00:10 Cook Time 06:00 Total Time 06:10 Yields 12 pieces

Ingredients

  • 6 peaches, peeled, pitted and diced
  • ¼ cup honey (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 170º degrees F, and position a baking rack to the center of the oven. Line a rimmed 18” x 13” sheet pan with a silicone baking mat, or silpat.
  2. Place peeled and pitted peaches in a blender and puree until smooth.
  3. Pour peach puree into a large pot on the stove and add honey (if using) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Pour puree into the center of the prepared sheet pan and using a spatula spread the puree evenly almost to the edges of the baking mat.
  5. Bake in the oven for 6-8 hours, or until the fruit puree is completely dry to the touch. Let cool completely.
  6. Lay a sheet of parchment on top of the fruit leather. Invert the leather and gently peel off the mat. Roll up the entire sheet of fruit leather starting from the short side and then cut the leather with kitchen shears into 1” strips, or as desired. Store in an airtight container for a few days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
