Candied Caramelised Pear Slices
These easy candied pearslices can be used to garnish a cake or cupcakes. They can also be enjoyed asit is. Super simple to make!
- 1 full Pear
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2-3 drops food colour of your choice
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.
- 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.
