Pestili with plums – Fruit rolls


Pestil or fruit leather is a natural fruit drying process that comes from the oriental kitchen. After removing all of the moisture from the fruit, they are cut into any size pieces you like and stored in sealed glass jars for a month or in the freezer for as long as you want! This process allows you to enjoy dried fruit all year round!

  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Cut the plums in half and remove pits.
  • Place them in the pan cut side up.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes.
  • Be careful not to burn them on top, you just want them to turn light golden and lose their moisture.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow them to cool.
  • Lower oven temperature to 60* C (140* F) Fan.
  • Transfer plums to food processor and puree.
  • Add the sugar and beat for a few seconds to combine.
  • Taste the mixture and add more sugar, according to your tastes. It is better if it is not too sweet since it will become sweeter as it dries.
  • Divide the fruit puree between baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  • Spread evenly in pans. The mixture should be 4-5 mm thick at the most.
  • Bake for as long as necessary for the mixture to become like leather (6-8 hours) depending on thickness.
  • It will be ready when it is no longer sticky and the surface is smooth.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Cut into strips along with the parchment paper, roll and keep in a sealed container.
