  • 6-8 ripe pears
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Wash and dry the pears. Prepare a large bowl with water and lemon juice (1 tbsp lemon juice for every quart of water). This will keep the pear slices from browning and adds a little more flavor to the pears.
Prepare another small bowl with the cinnamon and sugar mixture and set aside.
Slice each pear using a mandoline if you have one. You can also use a knife, but I find the mandoline gives you nice even slices that are perfect for dehydrating.
Place the slices in the bowl of lemon water so they don't brown while you are prepping.
Once you have all of your pears sliced, place each piece on the dehydrator rack until the entire level is full. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar if desired and continue until all of your racks are full.
Place the lid on the dehydrator and set it to 135º. It will take anywhere from 6-10 hours for the pears to fully dehydrate. Start checking them around 6 hours. You want them to be dry, crisp, and no mushy spots. They may be slightly leathery and should crisp up when cooled.
  • Times will vary depending on how thick or thin you slice your fruit, the climate and temperature at the time and your dehydrator.

    And if you don't have a dehydrator?

    • If you don’t have a dehydrator, preheat your oven to 225º. Place the sliced pears on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for an hour and a half, flip and bake for another hour and a half. Continue baking until you have your desired crispiness. Cool the pears on a wire rack before enjoying or storing.
