2. Ingredients for Homemade Grape Fruit Leather

  • 4 cups seedless red grapes
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

3. Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F.
  2. Line the bottom of a 10×15-inch rimmed baking sheet (also known as a jelly roll pan) with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  3. Stem the grapes and transfer to a colander. Rinse with cold water.
  4. Put grapes in a blender and process on high until the mixture is liquid and no large pieces of grape skin remain, about 1 minute.
  5. Strain the grape juice through a fine strainer into a medium saucepan, pressing with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to extract the juice. Discard the skins. Stir the honey and lemon juice into the grape juice.
  6. Set the saucepan over medium-high heat and bring juice to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is slightly thickened and reduced to about 1 1/4 cups, 12-15 minutes.
  7. Pour the grape mixture onto the center of the prepared baking sheet. Tilt the pan to even the mixture to 1/8 inch thick (measure to check). It’s okay if the mixture doesn’t cover the entire pan.
  8. Bake the grape mixture on middle rack of oven until leather still feels slightly tacky when touched but no longer sticks to your finger (check it quickly and carefully), 5-6 hours.
  9. Check to see that fruit leather is done. Remove from oven or add time as needed.
  10. Let fruit leather cool to room temperature. Peel from the silicone mat or parchment, then cut into strips about 1 1/2×4 inches, using a pizza cutter, knife, or scissors. Serve, or store in an airtight container between pieces of parchment or waxed paper in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.
