Fruit Leather Fish

Leviticus 11:9Of all that which is in the water, whether in the ocean or in the rivers, you may eat [only] those that have fins and scales.אֶת־זֶה תֹּאכְלוּ מִכֹּל אֲשֶׁר בַּמָּיִם כֹּל אֲשֶׁר־לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת בַּמַּיִם בַּיַּמִּים וּבַנְּחָלִים אֹתָם תֹּאכֵלוּ׃
11:10And all that which does not have fins and scales, whether in the oceans or the rivers,וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר אֵין־לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת בַּיַּמִּים וּבַנְּחָלִים מִכֹּל שֶׁרֶץ הַמַּיִם וּמִכֹּל נֶפֶשׁ הַחַיָּה אֲשֶׁר בַּמָּיִם שֶׁקֶץ הֵם לָכֶם׃
11:11And they will be repulsive to you, you will not eat their meat, and you fill find their carcasses repulsive.וְשֶׁקֶץ יִהְיוּ לָכֶם מִבְּשָׂרָם לֹא תֹאכֵלוּ וְאֶת־נִבְלָתָם תְּשַׁקֵּצוּ׃
11:12Every water creature that does not have both fins and scales will be repulsive to you.כֹּל אֲשֶׁר אֵין־לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת בַּמָּיִם שֶׁקֶץ הוּא לָכֶם׃

Ingredients:

  • 1 roll of fruit leather (as shown, enough for 4 snacks)
  • 1 raisin (enough for several snacks) (optional)

Tools:

  • Scissors
  • Metal spoon (optional, for simpler version only)

Instructions:

  1. Cut fruit leather in quarters.

2. Take one of the quarters, cut out the rough shape of a fish.

3. Cut a slit for the mouth (this is just a slit, then I pulled the mouth open), and poke a hole for the eye if not using a raisin.

4. VARIATION 1: Take a spoon, make a scale pattern on the fish. Take one of the parts you cut out of the fruit leather, press it into the main body to make a fin, cut a sliver of raisin, and top with a raisin eye!

4. Variation 2: Set aside one of the parts you cut out of the fruit leather to make a fin. Take the other trimmings, cut into bric-a-brac shapes to make strips of “scales.” Arrange on fish body, cut a sliver of raisin, top with raisin eye.
