Cinnamon Raisin Fruit Roll Ups

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups of natural or golden raisins
  • 1 pear, peeled and cut into smaller pieces
  • 2 cups of water
  • 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • Wax paper
  • A food processor or blender

Instructions:

  • Place the raisins and chopped pears in a large bowl while you bring the water to a boil.
  • Place the fruit in the boiling water and boil for about 20 minutes (or until the raisins are plump), stirring occasionally.
  • Remove ¾ cup of liquid, add cinnamon, and continue to mix ingredients in the remaining liquid.
  • Blend the fruit and cinnamon in a blender or food processor until it becomes a paste or thick puree.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Pour the mixture onto cookie sheets lined with wax paper, spreading it thin with a spoon.
  • Bake for 2 ½ -3 hours, checking periodically after 2 ½ hours to see if the fruit peels away from the wax paper easily. Remove from oven, cut into one-inch strips, roll them up and store the fruit rolls in an airtight container.
