Apricot fruit leather loaded with luscious hemp seeds. Add some sesame seeds and you’ve got a delicious fruit snack recipe.
You should look for soft apricots rather than plain dried ones if possible. This will make it easier to roll out the mass into a thin layer. If you do use dry ones, where there is little juice, you may be able to get away without baking. Though I have not yet tried this — let me know how it works out. You might lose some of the roasted hemp and sesame flavour. If you want to bake, but can’t find soft apricots, you can soak dry ones in water for a few hours.
