Plum Fruit Leather

This little non-recipe has turned out to be a great way to preserve some of my plum surplus, especially the ones that were too ripe for canning.

Simply blend pitted plums with a splash of lemon juice (and some agave if you want a sweet fruit leather), pour onto lightly-oiled dehydrator trays (either use commercial inserts designed for the purpose, or line dehydrator trays with plastic wrap), and dry for about 10-12 hours.

One caution: the flavor gets more tart as it dries, so make the mixture in the blender sweeter than you think you want it.
