It takes about 2 cups of puree for each square tray. I use parchment so the rectangle of puree is about 10x12 inches. I made three trays.

I cooked up some apples that were getting soft with a splash of lemon and a little water to start them. Then in the blender, I put in apple with cranberry puree and enough water so the oster would blend. I put a strip of the pink puree on 3 trays. Then I put frozen blueberries and apple in the blender with enough water (1/4 cup) to blend. I put that on each of the trays. I spread the purees into a rectangle, one end is pink and the other is blue. I dehydrated them at 135 deg F for a while last night, then turned it off overnight (they might over dry) and dried them more this morning.

I cut them with a scissors, 8 strips, right through the parchment, and rolled them up with the parchment. Mr bliss had one and I had one, and we both really liked them. I put the rest in a plastic bag for future use.

Apples and pears have a good amount of pectin in them, so apple sauce and pear sauce work as a good base for rollups. Some people add sugar or honey to make them sweeter, but we're used to the fruit the way it is.

I haven't made any with pumpkin or squash, but I'm thinking some pear/squash ones with gingerbread spices might be nice.

I once made some with banana and apple - they were delish. They were meant for the grandkids but never managed to make to them.

I didn't want them to go bad you see, so I ate them all. :blush:

I started some more rollups, pear sauce with cinnamon and nutmeg, 2 cups per parchment, 4 more trays. That will make about 8 strips of rollups/tray, 32 roll ups. For the kid, mr bliss, 71 year old kid.

We're kind of on a ROLL......with these rollups.

I was going to make more myself. All of them are delish! But I was eating them too fast and realized that one roll was the equivalent of eating 2-3 fruits (depending on fruit) X's 3 or 4 times a day.... not really good idea, but as I've often said, I've no control.

Maybe now being in the same household I will start again. We'll see.

I tried 1/2 squash and 1/2 pear sauce with pumpkin pie spices and honey. They are delicious but they pull apart in long lines on the parchment--maybe it needs to be thicker, or it needs more pectin like fruit. We love the taste of this one. I think I'll try 2/3 pear sauce (which dries smooth on its own) and 1/3 squash/pumpkin with the spices and then see if it dries nicer.
