These fruit roll ups are a bit different than most. Not only are they super-fast and easy to make with only two ingredients, but you can keep the ingredients on hand to make these any time. These roll ups are fun for kids, because you can make them in an array of pretty colors and even make multi colored rainbow roll ups.
- 50 ounce jar of unsweetened applesauce
- 1 box of jello, any flavor
Mix applesauce and jello together until jello is completely dissolved. This may take a bit of time so be patient. If you want to make multi colored roll ups, measure out one cup of applesauce, and mix with one tablespoon of jello. Adjust the amount of jello you use to get the color you want. Do this for every color you want in your roll ups.
Line dehydrator trays with plastic or teflex mats and parchment paper. If you do not have mats you can just use parchment paper. Spread applesauce mixture on trays thinly. You can also make multi colored roll ups, by create designs on the mats or parchment paper. To do this, use one applesauce color mixture at a time, and spread carefully to ensure that colors only mix a little bit.
Place trays in the dehydrator and dehydrate at 105 degrees F for 8 to 10 hours, or until the roll ups are dry and pull off the paper easily.
Remove roll ups from trays with the parchment paper. Carefully roll up each sheet with the parchment paper still attached. Once they are completely rolled up, trim paper and cut roll ups into desired lengths. Store in an airtight container. For longer storage keep in the fridge.
Tip: This roll ups can also be made in the oven if you do not have a dehydrator. Simply line baking sheets with parchment paper, and spread mixture. Place baking sheets in the oven set on the lowest temperature. Cook for 5 to 6 hours until the fruit roll ups are dry but still pliable. You will need to watch these more carefully as your oven does not have as low a setting as a dehydrator, and these can overcook quickly.
