Strawberry Fruit Leather

Makes about 6-10 fruit leather strips

16 oz fresh strawberries, cleaned and hulled
Agave or honey to taste (about 2 Tbs)

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a nonstick silicone baking mat. Set aside.

Puree the strawberries in a blender until smooth, then taste and add agave or honey, as needed. Blend a little bit more to make sure it is well combined. (If you would like to remove small seeds, pour blended mixture through a fine mesh strainer.) Pour blended mixture onto prepared baking sheet and spread in an even coat (roughly 1/8th-inch thick).

Bake for 2-3 hours or until the fruit leather is firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and let cool for about an hour. Gently peel the fruit leather from the baking mat and place smooth side down on parchment paper. Cut the edges so they are straight, then cut into strips and roll up the strips. Store in an airtight container.

Note: Get creative: Use your favorite fruit or a mix of fruits. The fruit leather will keep up to a month in an airtight container.
