some sundays are spent figuring out what to pack in the lunchbox for the next week. yesterday my daughter and i had fun making some dried pear chips for her lunch. we had the windows open, and soon, the house was filled with the comforting scent of fall.
this recipe is so easy, it does take some time in the oven, but it so worth it!
pears, unripe ones are just fine
spices, optional (we just kept ours plain and they were great!)
-pre-heat oven to 200 degrees
-line cookie sheet with parchment paper
-thinly slice your pears (the thinner the better, so sharpen your knife! you may also use a mandoline for even slices.)
-place a single layer of pears on your cookie sheets
-bake for 1 1/2 hours, flip them all over
-put back in the oven and cook for another 1 1/2 hours
-store in an airtight container until they disappear!
