Ooh, Pear Leather sounds delicious, Frank! Which pears would make the best leather? My preference goes to Anjou pears. Would those work?

Welcome to DC Tessb. This is a fun place to be at. Lots of laughs, along with info. Someone will be along with the information you are seeking. I don't own one, so I am of no help to you.

Strawberry slices, blood orange slices and apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon. My grandson calls them candy and who am I to argue?

Oops almost forgot my all time fav! Concentrated bone broth that I turn into powder. Awesome for cooking or for getting over a cold or flu.

Zucchini slices with salt olive oil and vinegar are great! I tried spicy cucumber chips but didn't like those....
