A documentation of my preservation and preparation of local foods as I work through the seasons. This will serve as a reference tool for me in the future and as a sharing guide for family and friends...and anyone else interested. Hopefully, I can offer some useful methods, tips and recipes to share with everyone--be they novice or pro--and encourage them to join me in the exciting world of preserving and cooking with local foods.

Apple Cinnamon Leather

Found a stash of last year's applesauce in the back of my canning pantry (don't know who I was hiding it from).  Borrowing on my sister Deb's idea for making apple leather, I emptied them onto my dehydrating trays.  After spreading it even, I sprinkled cinnamon sugar across the top of each one (heavy on cinnamon, light on sugar).  Hopefully I discovered a new treat!
  Step aside Fruit Roll-ups, these are yummy!!


  1. I made these years ago with my dehydrator (before kids) and took some with when I went back to Europe. I mixed in the cinnamon before spreading it out in the dehydrator. They were very good.

  2. P.S. Cool Picture!
