Dehydrating Pears

Gooday HiveGarden Community

i've been gathering pears for about 3 months now from beneath a big old pear tree in my garden.

i made one batch of pear cider (but left some in the barrel to turn to vinegar). i posted about it here:

Last year a couple of volunteers did all the work with the pears, but i didn't have any volunteers in these times this year. Both of them however sliced their fingers somewhat on the mandolin (a kitchen tool for slicing).

@lio.ness didn't cut her finger too badly though and didn't even tell me about it until i noticed a plaster on her finger. Luna though cut her finger quite badly and i took her to the hospital for stitches.

So, today i finally got off my backside to slice and dehydrate some pears to make pear crisps. i am being extra careful with the mandolin.

i decided to use the serrated blade this year for extra crunchiness.

These pear crisps (or pear chips) are quite delicious and keep well for many months. i always save empty paper and plastic bags throughout the year which i use to store them in. i prefer to use paper bags from flour or oats, but the plasticy-foil bags from rice crackers work well too.

Do you make pear or apple or any other type of raw chips? Let me know in the comments below please.
