Ingredients

  • 1 fresh pineapple

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 95°C/200°F.
  • Cut the top, bottom and rind off your pineapple. Dig out the excess rind and seeds.
  • Slice the pineapple into thin rounds. This is easiest with a mandolin, but a sharp knife will also work. You want the paper-thin slices to be almost see-through.
  • Line a tray with baking paper. Place pineapple slices on the tray and use a paper towel to soak up the excess moisture. Turn and repeat on the other side.
  • Bake for 40 minutes. Then turn and bake for another 30-35 minutes. Remove them from the oven once they start browning slightly at the edges.
  • Place warm pineapple slices into a muffin tin to help them mold into a flower shape. You might need to use a mini muffin tin for small slices. Leave overnight.
  • Store dried pineapple flowers in an airtight container and use them within 2-3 days.
