Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups: Blackberry & Lavender

As a child, my mother would take me to the local health food store and it was always a treat to get a fruit roll-up.
Back then, the flavor choices were pretty basic. You had: apple, grape, cherry, and I think they added peach or apricot.
Now the roll-ups come in every color (artificial) and flavor (also artificial) under the sun, with little to no nutritional value.

When you make your own fruit roll-ups, you have control over the ingredients and flavors.
As an added bonus, this recipe will help you utilize any left over fruit or fruit that is almost too ripe.

Is there something I can use as a substitute for this? 2 tsp Culinary Grade Lavender Can I use frozen blackberries?

Are you wanting to substitute the lavender or the blackberries? Either way, the answer would be yes. You can use any herb or leave out the herbs all together. You can use frozen berries as long as they are thawed. I have made many variations of this recipe using different fruits and herbs. The key point is to remember 1 c of fruit to 1 cup of applesauce. I also failed to mention, this recipe makes two sheets for me in my dehydrator. All dehydrator sizes are different so yours may make more or less depending on the size.
