I have so many garden to kitchen cookbooks and many have recipes for fruit leather, but never got round to making it at home despite having so many recipes bookmarked. I am embarrassed to admit, its only because fruit leather began popping up on blogosphere that got me finally motivated.
I couldn't find my black cat cookie cutter as that is what I really wanted to do with the plum fruit leather, but I guess I could do that for next year now, so instead we have some of Batmans back up - Nocturnal Bats. I've rolled some plum fruit leather too for effect.
My regular readers will that my first attempt at making fruit leather was a bit of a fail, but I managed to save the pulped plums for other recipes including Plum Ketchup. The second attempt was much more pleasing. I loved how the fruit leather peeled off the sheet like old wallpaper being stripped from the wall. It was so satisfactory to pull off and moreso to eat. Zingy and surprisingly yummy.
Vegan Mofo Rainbow challenge yesterday was a colour you rarely eat; and today it is to make your food look like a photo taken with a black and white camera; and tomorrow its Goth Day - black blues and purples. I have combined the three challenges in one. What do you think?
