1/4teaspooncayenne pepper(1/4 teaspoon gives a nice bite, and 1/2 teaspoon gives a spicy, adults only fruit roll-up. Of course, you can leave the cayenne out, but I find the spice makes a fruit roll-up that grownups love, too).
If you have a dehydrator: lightly oil the solid sheets of the dehydrator. You can also line them with parchment paper. If you're using an oven: line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to the lowest temperature it will go. It shouldn't be above 175 degrees.
Combine the the strawberries, applesauce, honey, lemon juice, and cayenne in the blender. Blend until smooth. Taste, and adjust for spice and sweetness.
Pour the strawberry mixture onto the trays of the dehydrator or the baking sheets, making sure that you create a very thin layer. Dehydrate until the sheets are just barely sticky. In the round models, this could take as long as 24 hours, but in the Excalibur or the oven, it can be as quick as 6 or 7 hours.
Cut into strips (keep them lined with parchment if that's how you dehydrated them), and seal in an airtight jar at room temperature for up to a month.
