One of the many perks of working at a food co-op is the occasionally free fruit and veggies I can come home with. I found these sad looking pears in the break room waiting to be brought home. The skin is scratched and bruised, but these Bartlett pears are ripe and delicious.
I decided the best way to use them was to dehydrate them, and dip them into chocolate. For the chocolate I used regular semi-sweet chocolate chips and added a little cinnamon for extra flavor. They came out really well, and I am thinking about trying this with other fruits soon. I think next time I may not quarter the pears so the pieces can be larger.
