Hey guys it’s Joanne from Fifteen Spatulas.
Today’s video is going to be a little trip back to childhood, we are going to make homemade
strawberry fruit rollups. I ate these all the time when I was a kid, and it’s a little
alarming to look at the ingredients list now because the storebought version is full of
high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, artificial colors, artificial flavors, and
those just aren’t things that I want to eat. The homemade version only has three ingredients
and it’s all natural. To get started I have eight ounces of strawberries here, I just
cut the stems off. We’re going to throw this into a blender and we’re going to puree this
until it’s smooth. And if you don’t have a blender and want to use a food processor instead,
that works just as well. Once your strawberries are pureed, just check that there are no big
strawberry chunks left. And then pour the contents into a saucepan, and to the strawberry
puree you’re going to add three tablespoons of granulated sugar, and a tablespoon of freshly
squeezed lemon juice. Now we’re going to get this mixture on the stove and we’re going
to cook some of the moisture out. I set this over medium heat and we’re going to cook this
for 10-15 minutes, the mixture is going to get really thick and jammy as we cook some
of that water out. I’ve got my thick strawberry jam here, we’re going to spread this out onto
a silpat (you could use parchment paper as well). And use a spatula or an offset spatula
to spread this out into a rectangle. You want to spread this about 1/8 inch thick. If you
can see the bottom of the silpat it’s just a little bit too thin, and as this bakes or
dehydrates in the oven, it’s going to lose some moisture, so it’s not going to come out
quite as thick as it is when it goes into the oven. We’re going to put this into a 170
degree oven for about 3 hours to let it dehydrate. My strawberry fruit rollup is done. I let
this cool completely on the pan, then I transferred it to a piece of wax paper that I put on a
cutting board. Take a pizza cutter and cut strips of the fruit rollup. Then take this
little strip, start at the bottom, and roll it up! Voila, homemade fruit rollup, I love
these things. They’re so fun! If you have kids, this is definitely a kid friendly recipe
to make. You can get this full recipe on my website fifteenspatulas.com, I put a link
