Making Fruit Leather - It’s that time of year folks. The hawthorn berries are perfectly ripe for the picking. Grab as many as you can, give them a wash, crush them up and squeeze out the resulting juice into a flat bottomed dish. Once it’s left to set you can slice it into strips and dry it out further either by a fire, in an oven or a dehydrator. You are then left with fruit leather. A delicious snack that has a massive shelf life. I’ve mixed this one with some blackberrys and crab apples to give it a sweeter and more tart flavour. Nomnomnom!
Meet Kang Gyver, one of the raddest hiking guides in Korea! This was a jointly reported piece with Code Switch’s Shereen Marisol Meraji, who shares her end of the story from Los Angeles. Glad we did this, since it involved hiking + snacks.
