To make these delicious strawberry leather snaps using 2 ingredients, you need –
- 2 x punnets of strawberries
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
Simply combine and blitz up the two ingredients so they are well combined and smooth. You can strain the seeds through a fine strainer, but I didn’t bother to do that.
Spread the smooth strawberry liquid thinly over a lined baking tray.
Everyones oven behaves differently, but add your tray to a fan forced oven and leave for 2 – 3 hours.
Keep your eye on it and remove when it doesn’t look sticky.
Once cool, snap or use some scissors to cut into pieces. Delicious!
