  • Juice of 1 clementine (or a couple of tablespoons of any citrus juice)
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)

Step 1

Core the apples and pears.

Step 2

Slice them thinly with a mandoline or knife.

Step 3

Place a metal rack inside a baking sheet and brush the rack with the oil.

Step 4

Toss the fruit in the citrus juice. This prevents discoloration.

Step 5

Arrange the fruit on the wire rack.

Step 6

Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.

Step 7

Bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours or until the chips are crisp and lightly browned.

Step 8

Allow the chips to cool completely, then store in an airtight container. If you keep them longer than a few days, it’s a good idea to store the container in the fridge.
