Berries- sweet and juicy, isn’t one of the best things with summer being able to indulge in fresh fruits and berries? November doesn’t provide a lot of fresh berries in my part of the world and though frozen thawed berries are still tasty, they’re just not the same as those fresh… but, luckily, they can be turned into these yummy candy strings full of vitamins! This recipe calls for blueberries and raspberries but if you don’t have these at hand, any juicy berry like strawberries or black/red currants will do. Dates can also be exchanged for dried fruit if your diet permits.

2 trays, 20-30 strings

5 dl fresh or thawed blueberries/ raspberries or 2.5 dl of each

4 dates

1 large or 2 small bananas

2 cm vanilla

For striped strings:

Mix  2 dates, 1 (or 1/2) banana, 2.5 dl raspberries until smooth and pour in strings, about 4, on each baking sheet.

Scrape the seeds from the vanilla and mix with 2 dates, 1 (or 1/2) banana, 2.5 dl blueberries until smooth. Pour strings of these between the raspberry strings to achieve a striped look.

For one color strings:

Mix  all ingredients until smooth and pour on two baking sheets.

Both:

Use a spoon or spatula to even out the mixture so that it is evenly thick and so that there are no gaps between the stripes.

Place the trays in the oven and dry at 50-75C for approx. 4 hours, until dry. Turn upside down and carefully remove the baking sheet. Cut into strings about 2 cm wide.

Store in a dry place.
