I’m seriously going mandolin crazy! So far I’ve used my new mandolin slicer for baked potato chips and a spiced potato gratin. And just when I thought I’d be done with it, I see another mandolin-worthy recipe I just had to try. This recipe is adapted from a post I saw on Food52, a great website I go to for food inspiration. My version is crispy and sweet with a nice spicy kick.
The pear slices are sprinkled with an aromatic seasoning, then slow-baked to crispy perfection. To go with the cocoa, I used some of my freshly ground garam masala to add a nice warming flavor. For a sweet note, use homemade vanilla sugar, but regular is fine. Brace yourselves my friends, because these pear chips are highly addictive!
Spicy Pear Chips Recipe
Heat oven to 275°F. Halve each pear and scoop out the core.
With your mandolin, slice each pear half into thin slices, about 1/4 to 1/8-inch thick.
Mix cocoa, sugar and spices together in small bowl. Place pear slices a silicon-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle each side of the pear slices with spice mixture. Bake for about 1 hour, until almost dry, turning the slices over half way through to evenly bake. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
Total Time: 70-80 minutes
Yield: about 50 chips
