Strawberry & Rhubarb Laces

Last Thursday I was out and about with a friend in the wild and we stumbled upon some lovely rhubarb; it was an experience pulling the rhubarb from the ground with root and leaf still attached and we also foraged some other amazing wild edibles such as hawthorn leaves and fresh oak leaf shoots.
With Rhubarb in hand I headed home and on route picked up a punnet of strawberries so I could make a favourite snack/treat of mine for the family; we call them laces some call them leathers either way they taste great.

Equipment:
High Speed Blender
Dehydrator

Note: a regular blender should do the job and an oven on its lowest setting will work however, it requires a lot less cooking time in the oven than in the dehydrator. It’s all trial and error, that’s the fun of the fair.

Ingredients:
3 – Rhubarb stalks (no leaf, it’s poisonous)
1 – punnet of strawberries (roughly 12-15)
3 – Dates (can be made without, but the laces will have a sour kick to them, the dates give them that sweet treat appeal).

Method:
Real simple; peel the rhubarb, remove the stalks from the strawberries and take the stones out of the dates. Place everything into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the liquid onto a dehydrator sheet and place in a dehydrator for 6-8 hours, cut into laces; you can the eat them like that or roll them up and then dive in.

Enjoy
