It’s all gone pear shaped!

No happy baking days this week. I don’t have a working kitchen. It’s being fitted tomorrow but there won’t be any mains water until Friday. But did manage one little oven treat! Pear slices.

I cut them thinly then steeped them overnight in a pot of hot water, sugar and food colouring. The next day I baked them in a very low oven to dry them slowly. They become translucent, look like stained glass and are still edible and an unusual decoration for cakes. 🙂
