Pear Crisps

By Darren Purchese

A really cool, simple and, don't forget, delicious garnish made from pears. Great to add a crunchy element to desserts and looks fab on top of our Chocolate & Hazelnut, Pear Souffle.

Easy to make especially if you have access to a dehydrator, these will last for a while once dried if stored correctly in a sealed container.

100g water
100g caster sugar
½ lemon juice
1 whole pear, ripe and firm
1

 

2

For the syrup... bring the sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan and add the lemon juice. Set aside.

 

3

For the pear crisps… use a mandolin to slice the pear into wafer thin slices.

 

4

Dip each slice... in the pear poaching syrup and place the soaked slices onto a dehydrator tray.

 

5

Dehydrate the slices at 80C... until dry and crispy. This step can be done in the oven if you don’t have a dehydrator. Line a baking tray with paper or a silicone mat and dry in an oven preheated to 80C, this will probably take up to 8 hours.
