I’m not really sure what I just got myself into, but I’ve signed the tulip-man and myself up for kite surfing lessons this weekend. Never mind the fact that the closest I’ve come to a “workout” in months has been the morning “runs” that inevitably turn into morning “walk and talks” with my tulip-friend.

And never mind the fact that I’m going back to school on Monday and should probably be doing more productive things, like reviewing old statistics notes or packing my backpack or fixing lunches for the week. But no, I choose to procrastinate all of this by signing up for kite surfing lessons. Have you tried this before? Am I going to break my whole body? Am I doomed?

Anyways, other things I’ve been doing to procrastinate getting ready for school have included cooking a lot. Case in point, these homemade fruit roll-ups. We made strawberry fruit roll-ups back when Live Eat Learn was just a wee baby, so I thought we’d revisit them today, with us going plum crazy this week and all.

How to make plum fruit roll-ups

Here’s a general picture of how the making plum fruit leather goes:

  1. cook fruit
  2. blend fruit
  3. spread onto baking sheet
  4. dehydrate in oven for 6 to 8 hours
  5. cut into strips
  6. rock and roll

How easy is that? Yes, the amount of time in the oven can seem a bit lengthy, but with only 15 minutes of actual hands-on time, these homemade fruit roll ups will be ready before you know it.

    I love the single-ingredient-multi-recipe approach! Thanks for sharing your love of nutrition and great food! Oh, and btw, I lived in State College for a while, and graduated from high school there (although Penn State was not my college…) meatlessmain.com

    1. Sarah says:

      Thanks so much, Michal! It’s such a small world when you’ve lived in State College, isn’t it?

  2. My daughter loves fruit roll-ups, I can’t believe how easy it it to make them at home, will definitely be giving your recipe a try. Thanks!

    1. Sarah says:

      Hey, Fida! So happy to hear! They’re really SO easy, just set it in the oven and forget it for a few hours 🙂 And you can adapt it pretty easily to what her favorite fruits are.

  3. Laura says:

    Cant Wait to try these. they look great and i think my wee boy will love them. I am going to try them using forest fruits and just honey. Thanks for a great recipe.5 stars

    1. Sarah says:

      I’d love to hear how they turn out, Laura! Berries give such a pretty color to these 🙂

    hi, i bought a big bag of plums for a dollar in the fruit store and so I went looking for ways to use them. I have a batch of your plum roll ups in the oven as we speak .. I am excited to see how they turn out! What size pan did you use for 4 cups of fruit? and how long did that size pan take to “bake”? I’m wondering if mine is too thin or too thick…

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Raizy! My pan was roughly 18 x 13 inches (though I spread it out to the thickness I want, so it doesn’t usually take the whole pan). Did they turn out for you? 🙂

  5. I seriously can’t believe how easy and delicious this recipe is. Our only problem is that even when doing a double batch, it’s only a day or two before everything is completely gone. It’s like guilt-free candy, it’s healthy and tastes incredible.5 stars

    1. Sarah says:

      Ha! So happy to hear Kathryn! 😀

  6. Teri E says:

    Do I leave the skins on the plums when I chop and put in oven then purée?

    1. Sarah says:

      I do! It depends on how strong your blender is (will it pulverize them completely?) or if you’re okay with having a little bit of plum skins (some people hate it!)
