  • 1-1/2 pounds seedless red grapes
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Sort and wash grapes; remove stems. Place grapes in a steamer basket; place in a large saucepan over 1 in. water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 15 minutes or until soft.
  2. Preheat oven to 200°. Transfer grapes to a blender or food processor; cover and puree. Strain grapes through a food mill into a small bowl; discard skin. Stir in sugar and lemon juice.
  3. Line a 15x10x1-in. baking pan with parchment. Spread fruit mixture evenly onto parchment. Bake 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours or until fruit leather feels slightly sticky. Cool completely.
  4. Transfer fruit leather to a new 15x10-in. sheet of parchment. Roll up leather in parchment jelly-roll style, starting with a short side (do not unroll). Cut into six 1-1/2-in. pieces. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place up to 1 month.
