Beetroot and berry leathers

Beetroot and berry leathers...3 ingredients, hugely nutritious and a perfect snack for kids

Aprons on? Let‘s Cook!

5 minutes
4 hours

We tested these out in the oven rather than our dehydrator as dehydrators aren’t common in most kitchens!  They worked brilliantly and only took around 4 hours rather than 12 in the dehydrator

Ingredients

  • Beetroot
  • Punnet of berries (we used a mix of raspberries and blackberries)

Equipment

  • Spatula
  • Baking tray
  • Parchment paper
  • Scissors

Allergens

None

Directions

1 We cooked a large beetroot (you can buy a precooked beetroot if preferred) and then whizzed it up with a punnet of berries
2 Use a spatula to evenly spread it a few millimetres thick on a baking tray lined with parchment
3 Pop in the oven at 65c for 4 hours (keep an eye on it after 3 hours or so – how long it takes will depend on how thin you spread it, and some ovens are hotter than others!)
4 Allow to cool and then carefully peel off the parchment and cut into strips

Beetroot juice can indicate the acidity of a solution. If a solution turns pink when beetroot juice is added, it is an acid. If it turns yellow, the solution is alkaline
