Herb Recipe: Wild Fruit Roll Ups!

What a beautiful and amazing day! A scrumptious day, with many friends!!!

This recipe is for Wild Foraged Fruit Roll Ups! It is extra amazing, because I made them last night, rolled them up this morning so the children would have treats and I would have treats while hiking in the forest tomorrow. Then a friend came by, and left many beautiful blessings of every which way and kind! When I looked into a bag she left, guess what I saw? You guessed it! Home-made fruit roll ups!

Serendipity happens, and it is always fun when it does! Beautiful flowing wonderful things happen in life, when eyes are wide open!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is last years wild huckleberry and apple sauce. I have fond memories of foraging for olde apples and huckleberries with friends. I made this with a little raw honey. I spread it on a dehydrator sheet, and popped it in the dehydrator last night at 110 degrees, and woke up to Wild Fruit Roll Ups!

You can dehydrate at a higher temp for shorter time, if you wish. Simply spread your tray with wax paper or a non-stick dehydrator sheet.

A GREAT way to use up last years harvest to make room for the coming apples. Say bye-bye to boxed commercial roll ups, they are not nearly as good and VERY expensive for the little you get. Some even have corn syrup, artificial dyes, artificial flavors and preservatives. Home-made is delectable, the heat naturally concentrates the sugars and flavors, enjoy! A tip: you can make whatever your mind dreams up! Back in times of Mountain Living, we dried things on trays located near our olde, antique wood stove. Desert Dwellers use hot rocks for drying. Hot, arid places make wonderful natural environmental dryers by tying fruit pastes up in  cotton bags in the sun for later winter hydration and cooking.

    That is a great Idea; sometimes I still wish I had my dehydrator. It was great when I made jerky! 🙂

    Thank you Kati, I hope you get one again sometime! I try very hard not to do product endorsements on the blog, but if you are ever looking for a dehydrator, I have an Excalibur Food Dehydrator. They are expensive, but constructed really well and so large you can make lots of yogurt, sour cream in them (I make gallons at a time), cook low temp, and proof bread. Jerky, what an excellent idea!! Thank you! 🙂
