This recipe can be easily adapted to suit your tastes. Keep in mind that the flavors and sweetness will intensify during the cooking process.
How to Make Swirled Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups
- Begin by turning your oven on to its lowest setting—this should be between 140 and 170 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then lightly grease the surface of paper to ensure the fruit mixture can be easily peeled off.
- Place the strawberries in a food processor with one tablespoon of agave and one tablespoon of lemon juice and puree until smooth and pourable.
- Pour the strawberry mixture onto a baking sheet and tilt gently until the mixture spreads in a very thin layer across the entire sheet.
- Next place mixed berry blend with the remaining tablespoons of agave and lemon juice in the food processor and repeat the same procedure.
- Swirl the mixed berry blend into the strawberry mixture.
- Ensuring that the berry mixture is spread evenly as possible across the sheet, then place the sheet in the oven.
- Cook for 4-6 hours until the fruit has dried considerably and the center is no longer tacky to the touch. Don’t overcook, or you’ll end up with berry crisps!
- Let cool, then peel off the parchment paper and use a kitchen shears to slice it into strips.
- Store uneaten morsels (if there are any!) in an airtight container.
So Easy and So Good
Don’t let the long cooking time scare you away! This recipe is remarkably forgiving, and can be cooked in stages. If you need to pause the process, simply turn the oven off and let the mixture continue to dry inside the closed oven. When you come back, assess for doneness, and continue to bake at a low temperature if necessary.
