Fruit Roll Ups & Gazpacho

CHILDREN’S RECIPE: Cantaloupe and Honey Fruit Roll Ups

4 cups Cantaloupe, chopped (about 1 melon)
½ cup Water
Honey, as needed
Lemon Juice, as needed

Method of Preparation:
Pre heat oven to 140 F. Place melon and water in a saucepot and bring to a simmer for 10-15 minutes until melon softens. Mash in the pot with a potato masher or immersion stick blender.

Taste mashed melon and adjust to your liking with honey and lemon. Transfer to a food processor and puree. Taste once again and adjust seasoning with honey and lemon if needed.

Turn puree out onto a baking sheet lined heavy-duty plastic wrap (the kind you can microwave.)

Spread mixture evenly over baking sheet and place in oven for 8-12 hours (this is something best done overnight.) Roll ups are done when the top is no longer tacky. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut on plastic wrap to desired size, roll up and refrigerate.
