- Preheat your oven to it's lowest setting - This varies with each oven, but should be somewhere around 65-76 degrees C.
- Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Pulse mangoes in a blender or a food processor until smooth.
- Add applesauce and honey to blender and pulse a few times to combine.
- Pour mixture onto parchment lined baking sheets and use a rubber spatula to spread out evenly to the edges of the baking sheet. Aim for no thicker than 3.175-6.35 mm.
- Bake fruit leather for 4-6 hours, or until the fruit puree dries out and is no longer shiny. Should be dry but still flexible.
- Using kitchen sheers or a pizza cutter, cut the fruit leather into strips, cutting through the parchment paper as well.
- Roll up the individual fruit rolls, and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
