Autumn Olive Fruit Leather

You can find a food mill at LeRoux at home or often at a thrift store.

In a large saucepan, add enough water to barely cover your harvest. Boil for 15–20 minutes, or until the fruit is soft.

Run the seeds through a food mill This separates the fruit pulp from the skin and seeds.
At this point, depending on the relative sweetness of the fruit harvested, you may or may not want to add a little sugar to taste.

Using a dehydrator, line a stackable tray with the fruit leather insert and dry until done, approximately 18–20 hours. If you don’t possess a food dehydrator, the same result can be attained by spreading the pulp thinly and evenly on a cookie sheet and putting it into a low oven or in the sun until it dries. Try flipping the leather halfway through to be assured of an even dry.
