How long do the fruit leathers keep? Are they freezable?

I freeze ours all the time, but they never stay around long, so don't know how long they last.

They'll keep a LONG time. And by the way, do you know you can make leather out of the marinara sauce too? (Or any of the sauces, actually) Then you can take it camping! All you have to do is gently rehydrate it and voila! You don't have to take your electric stuff to the campground! you can have spaghetti or raviolis camping!

Wow, what an excellent idea, it is great camping or hiking food that way.
I have made lasagna to go, which is a bar that tastes like lasagna, I love that, and I have rehydrated burgers and such, but never the sauces, how smart you are!!!
I'm gonna' do this.

Wait a minute, back up. I can dehydrate my marinara sauce to a leather, and then rehydrate when we're camping??? Sounds great. We're going camping this weekend...and I'm taking chili....could that work also? It would be so much easier to carry a leather instead of a leaky bowl and worry about "loosing" my dinner from a spilled bowl!! What a great idea (if I got the facts right!)

It would be so much easier to carry a leather instead of a leaky bowl and worry about "loosing" my dinner from a spilled bowl!! Just a side note... I have been carrying more food with me lately to avoid having to eat SWD dinners, and got tired of that "leaky bowl" syndrome you mentioned. Then I found some excellent containers on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond (I've also seen them at Target sometimes, and at Wild Oats) called Snapware Snap N' Lok (aka Biokips) that have both a silicone seal and 4 latches, one on each side of the lid. They are air tight and water tight and really seal the food in and the crud out.

Thanks Shiva...I will look for these, as my family takes abuot 4-5 long weekends a year to go camping. These items would really help.
