Pumpkin Leather



2 cups canned pumpkin or 2 cups fresh pumpkin, cooked and puréed
1/2 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon powdered cloves


1. Blend ingredients well.

2. Spread on tray or cookie sheet lined with plastic wrap.

3. Dry at 140ºF.

4. When dry, remove from tray and cool briefly. Place leather on clean plastic wrap and roll up, so plastic separates layers of leather.

Dry time: 6 to 24 hours

Test for dryness: Fruit leather is done when it has a leathery appearance and is pliable enough to roll up jelly-roll fashion. Test by separating leather from plastic wrap; if it separates easily it is done.
