Take the pips out and place the plums in a blender. Add 4 Tablespoons of castor sugar. Blend. You can add more sugar if you feel like it is not sweet enough.

It will eventually look like this…

At this point you can strain the mixture to get rid of the lumpy/skin bits and create a really smooth fruitroll. I left mine in to add some texture but feel free to strain away.

Spray the baking tray with a little cooking spray and then spread the mixture on the tray using the back of a spoon.

Now you’re ready to put it in the oven to dry out. Turn the oven to 70°C (if you have a thermofan, use that setting or alternatively, a standard convection oven will be just fine), close the oven door and leave there for 10-12 hours to dry out.

And then you have fruit roll!!! Cut into slices whilst still warm. Keep in an airtight container or in the fridge.
