No Simmer Strawberry-Nectarine Fruit Roll Ups

Home » No Simmer Strawberry-Nectarine Fruit Roll Ups

Every summer, I make fruit crusts out of all the delicious summer fruits (and sales). It makes a great back to school lunch box. If you don’t have a dehydrator, I’ll give instructions. If you have a dehydrator, just go to step 1 and follow the dehydrator manufacturer’s instructions.

I have a lovely little friend named Everleigh, he is two years old this year. She battled time and time again with some serious complications in order to be reunited with her family. Everleigh has some serious stomach issues. Her parents got a Blendtec, which allowed them to make their own baby food using real food. Her stomach pain is gone! I couldn’t resist sharing their stories. How cool is it that a kitchen appliance can change someone’s life?

A stack of No Simmer Strawberry Nectarine Fruit Rolls, rolled in parchment paper and tied with string

Preparation time 10 minute

drying time 12 Hour

total time 12 Hour 10 minute

raw material

  • 2 pound strawberry Shelled
  • 5 nectarine pitted and peeled (peeling is optional, it’s a texture thing)
  • 1/2 cup sugar Elective


  • In a high powered blender, puree strawberries, nectarines, and sugar.

  • Line 2 jelly rolls or 13×18 Baker’s Half Sheet Pan with parchment paper. Pour half of the puree over one pan and the other half over a second pan.

  • Place jelly roll pans on a separate rack in the oven. Turn on the oven to the lowest setting your oven offers (200 degrees or less). Low temperatures won’t cook your fruit, but will slowly draw out the moisture and dehydrate it. This may take a while, up to 12 hours if you are in a high humidity area. Probably only 2 hours if you’re in the desert. The peel is done when it is no longer sticky to the touch.

  • Remove from pan and cut into strips. Roll up and tie kitchen twine if desired. Store in an airtight container. Stayed good for 1 month.


***NOTE: If you have to leave the house and don’t feel comfortable leaving the oven on, just turn it off when you’re away and turn it on again when you get home. This is very flexible.
***NOTE: If you have some crispy sides that don’t roll up, that’s ok. Put them in an airtight container with the rest of the rolls and they will soften.
