Fruit roll-ups are very simple to make. The most difficult part is waiting for them to get done so you can enjoy them. I use my Excalibur dehydrator to prepare the roll-ups.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook
