Dried Pears -- Tasty Treat
Tip: Don't dehydrate them so long that they become completely crisp. Leave them a little chewy but not moist.
This is a really simple process but you need a dehydrator. If you don't have one consider borrowing or going in on one with a friend. I shared the cost of my dehydrator with a good friend.
Pears -- Depends on dehydrator but I would set aside about 10.
Fruit Fresh (this inhibits discoloration and can be found near the canning supplies)
Sugar -- Just a pinch or two.
Peel, slice and decore pears.
Sprinkle with fruit fresh and gently toss.
Place slices on drying racks and sprinkle each with a pinch of sugar.
Dehydrate until desired doneness. Mine usually takes about 4 hours.
Store in an airtight container.
