“Just an avid reader of your postswho like the rest of the worldam trying to eat healthy. A friend of mine gave me the juicer and I almost choked when I put in 1 grapefruit1 orangeand an apple and got one glass of juice. LOL No way could I just throw out that pulp. So I just kept freezing it until I could figure out what to do with it. I had this old dehydrator gathering dust in the basement that I had used for jerkybut that was all I had done with it. While shoppingmy little girl wanted a box of fruit rollups that were 2.89 for 6 little rolls! That’s when it hit me….I had this whole arrangement of pulp at home that I would experiment with. They are what I call Frankenstein rolls. There is a little bit of everything in them. If you do a lot of juice I suppose you could keep all your pulp separate. But I throw it all in together…And you can put as much or as little sugar in itto your liking.”
“Dyan’s Frankenstein rolls”
“My favorite thing to do is every time I juice fruitI put the pulp in a bowl and put in the freezer.”
After I have several bowlsI defrost them all and puree it in a blender with a little bit of sugar and cinnamon.
Get it really smooth and then spread out in an even layer about 1/4 inch thick on the plastic tray.
Dehydrate for about 8-10 hrs and you have a fruit roll-up just like you get out of the storesbut made with real fruit!
Delicious as a little healthy snackand a great way to recycle the pulp.
“Its impressive all the new healthy things I’m making with these tools that my picky-eater kids (ages 3 and 1) love to eat each day. I hope to make the crackers soon.
