Does that give you a good visual while I struggle to find time to understand the inner working of my new camera? (and the fact that I seem to have misplaced the old point-and-shoot).
I saw Aimee's picture of her fruit leather on flickr and had a wild craving for the stuff. We weren't allowed to have fruit roll-ups as kids and as a result, I developed a taste for the real fruit leather my mom bought at the health food store (blueberry was/is definitely my favorite). We had a couple of mushy apples in the fruit bowl and several blood oranges leftover from an eyes-to-big-for-the-stomach moment at the market. I greatly dislike mushy, mealy apples and when they've passed their crispy dipped-in-peanut-butter prime, I usually make a batch of applesauce. This time however, I thought I'd do something a little different.
I threw the raw chunks of two peeled apples and two blood oranges into the bowl that goes along with my immersion mixer, pureed them into an orangy mash, and spread out the mixture evenly onto a silpat. Popped the whole thing in the oven set at convection at 70°C (approx 150°F) and three hours later, I had fruit leather.
I'm not entirely convinced that all of this was worth the effort to make a 12 in x 8 in sheet of fruit leather that was eaten in about 10 minutes but it was certainly tasty, even though it looked like that plastic gag vomit you buy at a joke shop.
