Fruit leather from berries (smokva)

Fruit leather from berries (smokva)
Cuisine:

    Ingredients

    Smokva is an ancient Russian treat which is now undeservedly forgotten. But just several centuries ago it was very popular and was called “dry jam”. Smokva is a dryish marmalade, some king of zephyr but not whipped till pale, vice versa, it is dark coloured, thickened on purpose and having no egg whites in its content. It was traditionally cooked from fruits with high pectin content, e.g. apples, quinces, plums, rowanberry. Now the technologies make it possible to use any berries to cook it.
