Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups: Nectarine & Sage

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.

Nectarine & Sage Fruit Roll-Ups Recipe

You can adjust this recipe and let your imagination go wild.


  • 1 Cup Chopped Nectarine
  • 1 Cup Applesauce
  • 2 tsp Culinary Grade Sage- chopped


  1. Place Nectarine and Sage in a food processor or blender.
    Puree until applesauce consistency.
  2. Add applesauce and stir until blended.
  3. Spread mixture on fruit leather tray in food dehydrator (this recipe makes 2 trays).
  4. Place tray in food dehydrator and run until dry.
    This usually abut six hours depending on your dehydrator and the humidity.

Health Benefits of Sage

Sage is generally my favorite holiday herb, but it also has some impressive nutritional and medicinal properties.
