  • Food processor or blender


  • 8 cups strawberries chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 150°F.
  • Line a large-rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine strawberries, lemon juice, ginger, and maple syrup in a food processor or blender, and blend until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture onto the center of the lined baking sheet and use a spatula to spread evenly over the parchment paper.
  • Bake for 8 hours, or until leather is completely dry, but still pliable.
  • If the edges dry out before the center, trim off the edges and return the rest back to the oven.
  • Be sure to check every 20-30 minutes to ensure the leather doesn’t overcook. It should be chewy, not crunchy!
  • Remove baking sheet from the oven, then let cool for 30 minutes.
  • Wash and dry a pair of kitchen shears. Cut the sheet of fruit leather into 8 strips, leaving the parchment paper on to prevent sticking.
  • Roll the strips one at a time, then store in an airtight bag or container.
