Cooking time: 10 minutes

Drying time: 5 hours


  • 400 g of strawberries
  • 2 red/green apples

Pour that mixture into a saucepan and stir in sugar. Cook this mixture for about 10 minutes at low heat until it gets thick with a jam-like texture.

Spread the jam out evenly onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet  The fruit mixture should be as thin as possible, about a thickness of 1/8 to 1/4 inch, with no holes.

Let the fruit mixture bake for 5 hours in an oven at 60 degrees Celsius. The dehydration process is completed when the middle is no longer tacky. If the edges get too dry, you can rub them with water.

Then, leave it aside to cool down. Cut the fruit roll ups into 1-inch wide strips. Use a string to hold it all together.
