Recipe for dried Strawberry Rolls – a healthy sweet treat
4 x 250 ml (4 C) strawberries, leaves removed, washed and chopped
125 ml (½ C) water
brown sugar or honey or lemon juice to taste
2.5 ml (½ t) cinnamon
Place the strawberries and the water into a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil over medium heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the brown sugar / honey or lemon juice to taste. How much you add will depend on how sweet your strawberries are to begin with.
Add the cinnamon.
Reduce the heat and simmer the strawberries for a further 10 minutes.
Puree the strawberry mixture until it is fine and smooth.
Pour the strawberries out onto you prepared baking tray lined with a silicone mat or baking paper and thick plastic (please read note above). Do not spread too thinly.
Place into an oven which has been preheated to 80˚C and allow to dry until the strawberry puree dries, is no longer tacky and can easily be removed from the silicone mat. This may take about 2 – 4 hours depending on your oven.
Once cool use a pair of scissors to cut into even slices and roll up.
