There are lots of variations of this recipe but I’ve researched and created my own. When making these make sure you buy red plums as other plums I found didn’t have as nice an outcome. I rate this recipe 4 stars as it tastes delicious and the texture is good but I don’t particularly like the stickiness that comes off onto your fingers when eating. Sorry I couldn’t supply an image as I ate it all and completely forgot but it basically looks like a sheet of dried fruit. Have fun!
1 kg red plums
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
- Preheat oven to its lowest temperature (my ovens was around 50 degrees celsius).
- WASH all of your plums, CHOP in half and take the pips out.
- Put the plums in the food processor and completely PUREE.
- Once pureed ADD honey, lemon juice and mixed spice and use food processor to mix thoroughly. SIEVE into a large bowl.
- Line 2 deep baking trays with grease proof paper and then poor your mixture in to both very thinly. The mixture needs to be thin so that it cooks properly and has a nice texture.
- PLACE in oven and leave for 8-10 hours. Note: When you remove roll-up from oven it should be a little spongey as it is warm and will harden when it cools.
- REMOVE from oven and leave to cool for about 2minutes. Take baking paper with roll-up on top out of the tray and place n a clean bench space. Using scissors or a knife to slice into strips, what ever size you think works best for you and roll-up.
- Store in a container in the freezer or serve and enjoy.
Don’t worry if there is some kind of green colouring on the baking paper below as that is just pigment from the fruit. You’ll know if you burnt the roll-up because it will be black rather than a reddish colour.
