Passion Strawberry Fruit Leather

2 cups washed cored and roughly chopped fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons passionfruit syrup (juice or flavoring)
3/4 cup applesauce (I use non-sweetened)
nonstick cooking spray

Purée chopped strawberries with the applesauce and passionfruit syrup.
Spray the fruit leather sheet of your dehydrator (the one without holes) with a light coating of non-stick cooking spray.
Pour the puréed fruit carefully into the tray set into the bottom section of your dehydrator. Dehydrate at full power for up to 8 hours, depending on the power of your machine, checking periodically toward the end of that time to see that there aren't any wet or sticky spots.
When done, cool for a couple of minutes and carefully slide a butter knife or thin spatula under the leather.
Cut into 2-4 pieces and roll into cylinders. Store in zip lock baggies.
