What exactly is Fruit Leather?
Stretch Island Fruit Leather is simply dried fruit in a bar. A convenient, portable fruit, in your pocket…without the squish!
Find a fruit blend that you like (apple and strawberry for example). Use ripe fruits, wash them, and carefully take out stems and seeds. Puree them in a blender and spread the fruit (1/8" to ¼ " thick) on a tray. Let it dry naturally under the sun (or in a home dehydrator, if you have one!) until the texture is just right. Then cut in strips and store in a dry place. You just created fruit leather, the old-fashioned way!!
Just as in this old recipe, at Stretch Island, they still use pretty much the same authentic way to make fruit leathers. Stretch Island Fruit Leathers do not dry under the sun but in dehydrators at low temperature to keep all their delicious qualities. Stretch Island Fruit Co. does not add any sugar to their Fruit Leathers. The natural sugar of the fruit gives them their sweet taste.
Stretch Island Fruit Leathers are manufactured without the use of artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or fruit grown by the use of genetically modified organisms. This is why they are just as good as the one that you used to love as a kid!
At Stretch Island Fruit, they strongly believe in the importance of 100% natural food to provide the best-tasting, highest quality fruit snack but also to encourage a safe and beautiful future for the planet.
