Our Farmer’s Market surprised us with sweet end-of-summer strawberries. I was asked to make fruit leather one day – I never realized how easy it was to make. It’s a wonderful and natural snack for everyone, especially those of you with young ones, and should for sure give this a try! You can do it together in the evening and bake overnight for approximately 7 hours.
