Dried Pineapple Flowers – Prep
First, peel one ripe pineapple.
Remove the eyes.
Slice as thin as possible – 1/8″ to 1/16″.
Tip: Use a serrated knife and rotate the pineapple every few slices so one side doesn’t end up flat.
Blot each slice with a paper towel to remove excess moisture, then place on parchment paper covered cookie sheets.
Bake 25 minutes at 250 degrees.
Turn slices over, then bake another 25 minutes.
Slices should be pretty dry. If not, bake a little longer.
Carefully remove each slice and place in a mini muffin tin
. Arrange the “petals” the way you like.
Place in the warm oven and bake 10 minutes.
Turn the oven off but leave the pineapple in to keep drying.
Check ever 10 or 15 minutes to be sure it isn’t getting too dark.
Remove from oven when you like the coloring then allow to dry a few more hours in the muffin tin.
Place on cupcakes, cheesecake, cake, fruit salad – anywhere you’d like a little flower happiness!
Enjoy your dried pineapple flowers!
