800g windfall apples
4 tbsp sugar (to taste)
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat a fan oven to about 80 degree C. Put three trays with greaseproof paper or silicone sheets on in the oven. Add the soft fruit to a pan and simmer. Cut the apples into small chunks, keeping the skins on and add straight to the pan before they turn brown. Simmer gently with the lid on the pan for about 10 min. Add sugar and cinnamon to taste. Take pan from the heat and puree with a hand blender. Take the trays from the oven and spoon the mixture onto them. Even out the mixture so that it is fairly even. Put in the oven and leave for several hours until the surface looks dry. It can take 4-6 hours. When it is ready it should peel from the paper or sheet. If it is still wet on the underside turn it over and put it back in the oven for a bit longer.
Variations - the recipe works with many different variations of fruit. The soft fruit can be any combination and it can be made without apples too. Blackcurrants make for a really intense version. Raspberries are good too. I prefer it with seeds in but you can strain it if you prefer it smooth. You can also make using a dehrydrator.
Once the leather is dry I peel from the sheets leave to cool then cut into strips about 25mm wide. I rool them up and keep in an airtight jar, or better still a vacuum jar for longer life. They get eaten pretty quick though. The flavour is very intense!
