Equipment

  • Oven/Microwave
  • Sauce Pan

Ingredients
  

  • 1 full Pear
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2-3 drops food colour of your choice

Instructions
 

  • Thinly slice the pearsvertically. Start from middle and then keep slicing till one end.
  • Make a simple sugar syrup by boiling water and sugar till sugar dissolves.
  • Dip the slices in the sugar syrup and let them simmer in the syrup on medium heat
  • You'll begin to see the colour setting onto the pear slices after 5-10 minutes
  • On a baking tray, lined with parchment paper, place the pear slices.
  • Bake the slices in the oven at lowest temperature for about 3-4 hours. Or till the sides of the pear are shrunken and the slices look dried out.

Notes

  • Use hard pears as the soft ones are little difficult to slice and will break once they are in sugar syrup.
  • I used oven temperature between 50-degree Celsius to 100-degree celsius for drying the slices.
