A healthy yet tasty snack is something always parents would dream for the kids, and fruit leather ticks all those boxes. It’s made of fruit, so healthy with a lot of nutrients. Easy to make, can be preserved for a long time. A thin sheet looked structure of the fruit leather also makes it easy to carry. You might have seen many fruit roll-ups available in the market. But homemade is homemade and homemade is happiness.
Fruit leathers were started to show up in the markets in 1983, but they were actually discovered way back in the 20th century. Though these fruit leather trends started in the United States, the recipe was developed by a Syrian immigrant community in NewYork, back in 1900. It was first made only in Apricot flavor, and with the demand, all the other flavored fruit leathers came into the market too. That’s how the Mango Honey Fruit leather was born.
Mangos are the sweetest treats that can kick the summer away. But sadly, it’s a seasonal fruit, and the season ends taking the mangoes away. With 4-5 months of rigorous mango treats and sudden loss of existence, we miss it terribly. When that happens, we look for artificial alternatives, which are nowhere closer to original mangoes, and the craving continues. But what if I tell you that you can preserve the mangoes in one form that lasts over a year? It sounds something like you’ve wanted, right? That’s why we’re here with Mango Honey Fruit Leather recipe – That satisfies your mango craving of the soul.
Fresh Mangoes : 3
Honey: 1 tablespoon
Instructions to prepare Mango Honey Fruit Leather:
- Wash the mangoes thoroughly. Peel the mangoes and cut them into small pieces.
- Put the mango pieces in a blender, add some honey to it. Blend the mixture to a smooth and thick puree.
- Take a wide tray and place a silicone baking mat or parchment paper inside the tray.
- Pour the Mango, honey puree on the baking mat, and spread it evenly into a ⅛ inches thick layer. Leave the puree to settle down for 5 minutes.
- Preheat the oven before placing the mango puree tray to 170 degrees.
- Place the tray inside the oven and let the puree bake at 175 degrees for about 5-6 hours.
- After the time, take the tray out and check if it is dry enough when you touch it.
- Remove the silicone baking mat or parchment paper and observe a thick layer of Mango and honey puree, which looks like leather.
- You can cut this into different shapes or simply roll the whole sheet and cut it into small cylindrical rolls.
If you leave the Mango Honey Fruit Leather at room temperature, it’ll be good to consume for about a month. But when you preserve it in air-tight containers in the fridge, it can last up to one year and can cure your cravings for Mango until the next mango season.
- Sure the recipe sounds easy and long-lasting, but using fresh mangoes and honey can enhance the taste and life of it. So avoid canned mangoes and choose natural honey.
- Take a peek in between inside the oven to make sure that the puree is not on burn due to the long baking session.
- Once you take the tray out and it feels over dry, you can simply spread a wet towel on top of the leather for a few minutes and take it off. This makes the texture to the right dryness, chewy, and helps in rolling or cutting the leather.
