Homemade Yogurt Fruit Leather

Posted in Gluten Free, and Reviews

Special thanks to Lucky Star 14 LLC for providing samples of their dehydrator sheets to use in our home for evaluation. Recently, I heard about a twist on regular fruit leather – yogurt fruit leather. It sounded like a snack that I’d really enjoy. We have lots of yummy fresh berries at the farmers market this time of year, so it was a perfect time to give them a try.

While I do know some about preserving, I thought it would be nice to jump into learning more skills such as yogurt making, sour dough baking, and creating homemade treats for the pups. I love kitchen gadgets – just ask anyone who knows me and they’ll confirm that. lol! Yet, this time, we’re going a bit old school as I don’t have fancy gadgets to make all of this work. The first thing that Munchkin attempted was making yogurt. She…
