Pears to be dried are halved, cored and peeled. Treat
with sulfur for 5 hours or steam for 6 minutes. Peeled
pears that are steamed will be soft. Dry 18 to 24 hours in
a dehydrator. Drying times can be shortened by cutting the
fruit into slices. The pears are dried properly when they
are soft and pliable with no moist area in the center.
