User Error: Fruit Rollups

Posted under Fail

Pin Reaper: Lauren

Original Inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/346143921330611843/, via http://www.fifteenspatulas.com/homemade-strawberry-fruit-rollups/


What I Did: I had some leftover fresh blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and a kiwi that were a little to squishy to snack on so I went searching for a way to make them useful. The recipe only called from strawberries but I thought different fruits would be cool. I tried to follow all the other instructions but it ended up taking much more time on the stove top and much less time in the oven. I couldn’t separate the paper from the fruit. The small bits that I could peel off tasted pretty good.

My Result:

pinterest fail fruit roll up

Next Time I Will:  I think it could be saved by spreading the fruit jam thicker on the paper. To be fair the recipe did warn of this problem.

    I have made this many times and don’t worry using different fruits did not ruin it. But always spread it on very thickly! Or get a dehydrator with fruit leather sheets, much easier!

      i like the title of it being “user error” kinda makes it separate from it being a human error than the pin itself being a fail.

          I have laughed out loud at so many fails on this site but these so-called “user error” fails are turning me off the site. The recipe calls for strawberries only, the user didn’t let it cook on the stop top long enough and kept in the oven too long. If you don’t follow the recipe exactly, it’s not user error it’s just dumb.
