Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200F.
  • Slice pineapple into paper thin slices. It's best to use a mandolin slicer to get the slices as thin as possible.
  • Dry each pineapple slice carefully on both sides with a paper towel, getting up as much moisture as you can.
  • Lay the slices (again, be very careful!) on a large baking grid/cooling rack. Place the rack over a large baking sheet (so it doesn't drip in your oven).
  • Place in the oven for 2-3 hours or until the slices are fully dried out and crisp on the edges as shown.
  • While still warm, place each dried pineapple slice into the inside of a mini muffin tin or similarly sized small cup/dish to create the shape of flowers you want. Allow pineapple to fully dry in the muffin tin. Once dried, they'll hold their shape!
  • Place flowers on desserts such as Hummingbird Cake as garnish, or eat as a low calorie snack!

Notes

NOTE: if you prefer to make these as an appetizer or snack, there's no need to form them into flowers. they're delicious as "pineapple chips"!
