Dried pears are a tasty, portable, and healthy snack and they are also wonderful sprinkled on salads. Combine them with fresh fruit to make compotes, or add them to yogurt parfaits, ice cream bowls, cake batters, homemade granola, or overnight oats. A pear is one of the best fruits for dehydrating.
Dried pears contain a decent amount of fiber, with 3 grams per quarter-cup serving. Fiber is essential for your digestive health, and can help to prevent constipation. The fiber in dried pears helps lower your LDL cholesterol (“bad cholesterol”) which can reduce your risk of heart diseases.
