~ Raw Pineapple Flowers ~

This recipe I had found from a Martha Stewart magazine years ago. It is amazing at how much pineapple could look so much like a flower. This recipe, however was not cooked, but dehydrated for several hours.


I peeled the pineapple and used a small melon ball tool to take out the brown corns which left little holes. This is what caused the pineapple to look as if it had petals.


I thinly sliced the pineapple and placed the pieces on the dehydrator tray.


I dehydrated these for about five hours at 105 degrees then flipped them for the same amount of time. As they became dry the edges curled up like real petals. I also noticed that the edges turned a deeper yellow.



These would make a wonderful garnish on a raw dessert or salad which I have done in my book which comes out next Month, March 2010.




These taste just like sour pineapple gummies. That are sooooooooo deeeeelishous!!




ENJOY!!

  3. So pretty! I'd like to make these to decorate cupcakes I'm making for a friends wedding. I'm wondering, how many did you dehydrate at once? And how long do they keep?

    Thanks, L.
