Greengage and Orange Blossom Fruit Leather

Tip: when starting out in your fanciful fruit flavour combinations look to the country of origin of the fruit in question and use that for inspiration. Fun greengage fact — they originated in Iran.

Ingredients

1kg greengages

4 Tbsp orange blossom extract (the better the quality the better the outcome, but I find orange blossom water a little difficult to come by and make do with whatever I can find in the gourmet grocer).

20g raw sugar

Method

Preheat the oven to 180⁰c

Add all ingredients to a lined or non- stick baking dish and roast for 30 minutes or until greengages have softened and have a caramelised a little. They will release a lot of liquid, so not panic.

Blend using a stab mixer and spread evenly over baking or fruit leather sheets (I use reusable silicon baking mats from the hospitality supply shop).

Dehydrate in a dehydrator for approximately 10 hours at 70⁰c.
