Ingredients

  • 1 medium ripe pineapple

Instructions

  • Slice the top and sides off of the pineapple with a sharp knife. Leave the bottom intact. You will need a non-slippery surface to hang on to as you slice the pineapple.
  • Using a mandoline slicer, slice the pineapple as thin as possible. If you don't have one, you can use a sharp knife instead. Just be sure to cut the slices as thinly and evenly as possible.
  • Place the slices on a dehydrator, leaving some space between the slices for air circulation. Once the racks are full, cover with the dehydrator lid and choose the vegetable/fruit setting. On my dehydrator, it's set to 135 degrees F.
  • Begin checking the pineapple chips after 3 hours. Mine were ready after 4 hours. The chips are supposed to be crispy, but if you prefer them more pliable, remove them sooner.
  • The chips will get crisper as they cool, so don't expect them to be crisp before removing them, or you'll overcook them. They're almost too beautiful to eat... get over it, and eat them!

Notes

  • The chips will get crisper as they cool, so don't expect them to be crisp before removing them, or you'll overcook them. They're almost too beautiful to eat... get over it, and eat them!
  • Don't you think these pineapple chips look like pressed poppies? If you like to bake, you can use them to embellish carrot cake or cupcakes.
  • To make pineapple chips in the oven, place the sliced pineapple on trays lined with parchment paper and cook at 250-degrees F for 2-4 hours (check them every 30 minutes). Once they feel dry to the touch, gently flip them over to the other side.
  • Pineapple chips dried in the oven might end up having burned edges compared to the ones dried in the dehydrator.
