- With scissors make a small angular cut in the bottom corner of your the ziploc bag that contains the mango. This will allow you to squeeze out a small amount at a time. Gently squeeze the bag making stripes of mango across the strawberry puree. Do not worry how close the lines are.
- With a large cake knife, ½" from the edge of the puree place the knife down and move forward. Lift the kniife and place down again about ½" away this time move the knife back; continue to end. This creates a nice design.
- Place in oven or dehydrator for approximately 3-4 hours. The fruit leather is done when it is leathery, shiny, and slightly sticky.
