How to Dry Pears in a Dehydrator

Ripe pears

Leda Meredith

Place the trays of pears into the dehydrator. Dry between 130F to 140F (54C to 60C) until the pears are leathery with no moist spots (usually 8 - 10 hours).

Turn off the dehydrator and allow the pears to cool at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Store dried pears in tightly sealed glass jars away from direct light or heat.
