In This Recipe
Preheat oven to 175 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with a Silpat silicone baking mat.
Cut sweet potato and fruit into 1 inch pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl or large glass measuring cup. You should have approximately 4 cups total
Microwave contents on high until everything is soft and tender, about 8 minutes.
Transfer contents to the bowl of a food processor.
Add agave syrup and spice mix. Puree mixture until completely smooth.
Pour mixture onto Silpat and smooth out to the edges until evenly thin and smooth. An offset spatula is helpful for this step.
Bake on a middle oven rack for 4-5 hours, until fruit leather is firm to the touch, and pulls away from the baking mat easily.
