Do I need fruit leather trays for my dehydrator to make fruit leather?

Recommended Posts

Or is there a good substitute? My husband wants me to use plastic wrap on the regular trays but I am wondering if the plastic will leach chemicals. I am wondering if I could use freezer paper or wax paper. Has anyone had any success with substitutes? I want to use my dehydrator rather than the oven because I think that I can process more that way. I would appreciate any suggestions on this.

I use parchment paper. My dehydrator came with only one tray. I tried just making one at a time but that is too tedious. The trays are definitely easier but parchment paper works too.

I know you don't want to use your oven but I got some really cheap trays at the dollar store, you can fit 4 in at a time. I also use wax paper and it seems to get done a bit faster. Plus you have nice rectangles to roll up nice.

The plastic wrap seems to me like it would get all bunchy and be a pain to take off the fruit leather once it was done. Definitely invest in some of the sheets that go in the dehydrator or parchment paper. Those will work much better. I have a 9 trya one that only has 3 sheets with it, but it works well.
