Fruit Roll Ups

The boys love fruit roll ups.  I have never been a fan.  I think they are a waste of money for a bunch of sugar.  But, I thought if I could make my own we could find a compromise.  I found this recipe on Pinterest and then added some honey to sweeten it a bit.  The boys LOVE these.  Plus, I can send them to school as a snack or put them in their lunch boxes.  I just store them in a plastic container.  

Fruit Roll Ups
From My Edible Advice
2 cups organic strawberries
¼ tsp cinnamon
(1-2 TBS honey...or to taste)
Blend the fruit until smooth, then spread onto a Teflex sheet or a parchment-lined baking sheet.
If using a dehydrator, dehydrate at 105 degrees F for 8-10 hours or until the fruit is pliable and easy to peel from the sheet.
If using an oven, leave it on at the lowest temperature until the fruit is dry (times will vary depending on the oven).
Cut into strips and store in a glass container in the refrigerator.

We used to take this stuff, spread it on wax paper (I think) and leave it on the roof of the pig barns in the middle of summer when I was very young (pre-Chelsey). It was so good.
