Cantaloupe Fruit Leather

Peel and chop a melon. Place fruit in a large saucepan. Add a half cup of water for every 4 cups of chopped fruit. Bring to a simmer, cover and let cook on a low heat for 15 minutes. Mash up the fruit and taste to determine if any sugar, lemon juice, or spices are needed. Continue to simmer and stir until the fruit purée has thickened, another 10 minutes. Blend the puree thoroughly in a blender or food processor. Taste again and adjust sugar/lemon/spices if necessary. Line a rimmed baking sheet with sturdy plastic wrap. Pour out the purée into the lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the oven. Heat the oven to a low 140°F. Allow puree to dry overnight, about 8-12 hours. The fruit leather is ready when it is no longer sticky, but has a smooth surface. To store it, roll it in its plastic wrap, put it in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
