Strawberry Chips

The other day I was testing out a recipe for fruit leather. It did not turn out as planned... at all. I did however stumble across a great creation: Strawberry Chips!  In the oven, my fruit leather hardened to a crisp, but kept all its strawberry goodness. When I removed it from the oven, the fruit snapped into pieces and voila! I was left with Strawberry Chips. These are perfect for dessert toppings or just on their own as a sweet treat. 




Strawberry Chips take less than 5 minutes to prepare, and several hours in the oven, so if you want them for a specific occasion, you can just make them ahead of time and store them in an airtight container. 

Here is my recipe for Strawberry Chips:




Ingredients:
2 Cups Strawberries
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup

Instructions:

In a blender or food processor, purée the strawberries and maple syrup together until smooth. 

Spread over a silicone or parchment lined baking tray. 




Bake at 170’ for 3-4 hours or until crisp in the middle. 

You will be able to see the colour darken from the outside edges, inwards as it bakes, it is ready once the colour is uniform and dark red throughout.  

Here is a picture halfway though baking, you can see it is not yet ready in the middle where the colour is lighter. 




Remove from oven and let cool. Break apart into chips, and enjoy!
