- 6 Asian Pears (about 1.5 pounds)
- 4 cups cold water
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5-Spice Powder
- Fill a bowl with the water and lemon juice.
- Peel and core the pears. Using a mandoline or a steady hand, slice the pears into rings that are about 1/4 inch thick.
- Place the pear rings in the water as you work.
- Once you’ve finished slicing all of the pears, drain the water and pat the pears dry with paper towels.
- Toss the pears with the Chinese 5-Spice powder then lay them out in a single layer on your dehydrator trays. I line my trays with parchment to prevent sticking.
- Dehydrate at 135 degrees for 5-7 hours, rotating your trays half way through. All dehydrators are different, so check yours at 5 hours. They should be pliable and not crisp. Careful not to let them dehydrate too far or you’ll end up with Pear Chips (which wouldn’t be too bad I guess!).
*You can do these on the lowest temperature in your oven if you don’t have a dehydrator. Times will vary, so check them frequently.
