Pear Chips
Try this with your favorite fruit or vegetable.
  • 2 pears
  • 2 Tbs fresh lemon juice.
  1. Preheat oven to 200ยบ.
  2. Fill large bowl with cool water and add lemon juice.
  3. Using a very sharp knife, or mandoline, slice pears into very thin, even slices. {No need to peel pears, but remove stem either before or after baking}. Add slices to the bowl of water and let sit for about 3 minutes.
  4. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
  5. Carefully remove pears from bowl and drain on paper towel or a clean dish towel. Place in a single layer on the parchment-lined baking sheets.
  6. Bake for 2 hours, checking every 15 minutes after 1½ hours. Cooking time depends on how thick or thin your slices are. Remove from oven when lightly browned but still slightly pliable. Chips will crisp as they cool.
