   The ingredients may be a bit uncommon....but the theory is the same,
 no
   matter what fruit you use, so make cherry leather...or orange
   leather...or....well you get the idea.
   
   PUREES, FRUIT LEATHERS & CHIPS: Fruit leathers are dried leathery
 sheets of
   pureed fruit. Fruit chips are made from crisp fruit leather that
 breaks
   easily. Both have tangy, concentrated fruit flavor that makes them a
   favorite snack for anyone, especially handy to pack in a lunch or
 rucksack.
   Much of the following information about making purees, fruit leathers
 and
   chips and the individual recipes are excerpted and adapted from
 University
   of Alaska Cooperative Extension Service Bulletin P-228, “Fruit
 Leather”
   
   PUREE: To make berry purees, rinse berries, drain, put in a blender
 and
   blend until the consistency of thick puree. Most berries do not need
 to be
   cooked. Salmonberries and highbush cranberries have larger seeds and
 should
   be put through a sieve after blending to remove seeds.
