  • 2 pears


  • Pre-heat the oven to 120°C/100°C fan.
  • Chop off the top and bottom of the pears.
  • Thinly slice (about 1mm thick) as uniformly as possible.
  • Lay out the pear slices on a baking tray (I use three trays for two pears) ensuring that none of the slices are overlapping and place in the oven for 1 hour 15 minutes.
  • After 1 hour 15 minutes, turn the pears and return them to the oven for a further 1 hour 15 minutes.
  • After they have finished cooking, turn off the oven but leave them in the oven for a further hour to become fully crisp.
  • Serve.


These pear crisps will keep in an airtight container for a few days.
